    As a Non-Winner, I tried to call the number and order one, but I was refused because I did not receive the email and do not have a "code" from the email. :(

    Anyone not using their "winning" Golden Ticket for an MSRP+Tax+Shipping Stream?

    No the stream does not have a radio and yes it uses what ever you are currently using to broadcast wifi. The stream has to be hard wired through to the device that you are currently using to broadcast wifi.

    Why are they leaving money on the table like this? I called them, offered to give them money, and they told me that if I didn't "like" their FB post and get an email back, they don't want to sell me one of their boxes? How completely odd, and lame?!

    I assume they have a limited number of units from their first shipment and those were the ones they can deliver by 9/5. I also assume another shipment is enroute since they're opening the doors wide on 9/6.

    Seems like they have blown through their 600 units! When I called, they asked for my email address and very quickly made some comment about it being shiped out after the 5th - the date of general availability.

    The "winners" are supposed to receive the unit ON September 5th.

    A few days one way or the other does not matter to me - But hey, I am interested to know know if anyone who is not actually a sweepstakes winner, receives their TiVo Stream on September 5th.

    I had no such problem. I called the SALES number specifically and when TiVo SALES answered the phone I said "I'd like to pre-order the TiVo Stream". She told me they had one in the break room and it was very cool. The total transaction took perhaps 5 minutes. She also said that they would bump my order up to overnight shipping at no extra charge so that I got it within a day of when it was in the stores.

    I am pretty sure I know the answer - but It is worth the question...

    If I have a home movie or other video on my media library (something other then a .tivo file), can I move the video to my Premier and then sideload it to the tablet?

    Any restrictions on non .tivo files I guess is the real question.

    The $129 is also the MSRP. This is a hardware only product more like a slide remote or wifi bridge than another TiVo so one might expect the price to be less at other vendors once it has been out for a bit.

    Good question, and I don't know the answer. I know things like the podcast downloads and Amazon videos won't come over, but I would assume video we moved over would be seen as any other "normal" recording. I'll check in with a beta tester I know and reply if/when I learn anything further.

    Thanks. Great I can stick it in my basement out of the way, but annoying that I'll finally have to move my router to get a decent wifi signal to my detached garage!

    This is a great question I have tons of kids movies I transfer to my Tivo from PC/Media server. I also have other format movies that I like to transfer to my Tivo. I'm crossing my fingers that this is going to work.

    That would kind of suck due to bandwidth issues. You'll be streaming wirelessly to your iPad, then streaming wireless out from your iPad to your Apple TV. It would be better if Tivo just had an Apple TV app.

    Unless this thing downloads to your iPad/iPhone before being able to watch the show. I haven't read all the details on this device so it may work that way and thus you wouldn't be trying to push/pull data simultaneously over one wifi connection.

    That falls into the same category as the Roku app we discussed earlier. (i.e. probably not going to happen) TiVo wants you to buy a Mini, or additional TiVo, for streaming to other TVs.
