    Where is Fofer when we need him? :D

    In theory, the 'winners' would still on average able to use their streams earlier than the "losers", by about half a day. A theoretical loser ordering today would on average not receive his stream until half way through the UPS delivery workday tomorrow.

    What's going to be really funny is when the app fails miserably, nobody can use it, and it takes weeks/months/years for a version that works right to be released. Then again, the iPad app has a pretty good track record.

    I saw your post before you edited and sent my own note as well. I'm glad to hear that our campaign worked out. :)

    I didn't think that's how it works from talking to other developers. That being said, if true, then everyone SHOULD complain to TiVo...make them force the update!

    If it really is entirely up to Apple then TiVo should have had the forsight to release the app weeks ago ahead of the hardware release. Trying to time it to match a launch when someone else is ultimately in control is just asking for disaster.

    I think this was mostly a case of having the CSR's message under-promise the availability, just in case. It could have been in nobody's plan to get these units out for people to merely gaze at for 24 hours prior to using.

    I also expect that even if both of these products were ready at the same time, TiVo would not coordinate their release so they could get more press. I would.

    Same here -- checked it 5 minutes ago, and it wasn't up. Just checked again, and it's there.

    Box is plugged in already, so about to give it a try...

    Edit: Step 1 -- updating the software on the Stream -- "can take up to 20 minutes".

    Yay! Now I just need my Stream to get here. It's out for delivery, but says they have until 3:00pm to deliver it. (only 11:30 right now) Come on UPS!

    Probably a DRM requirement to prevent capturing of the stream. Remember these things work with flagged recordings too, so they have to ensure the path is secure end to end.

    Very good - updating my iPad now... The Stream should be at the house by the time I get home.

    Very excited to play with it.

    This thing runs hot. No wonder it needs a fan.

    System Information page says system temp = 70C.

    FWIW, software version says 19.0-01-6.

    Tried the closed captioning on a PTI show -- they need to do a little work to make it usable. The captions flash on and off so quickly you can't read them.

    Wait, so even if I don't own a Stream, the new app won't run on my jailbroken iPad or iPhone?

    edit: to answer my own question: yep. I get a message about "unauthorized modifications detected" and then it just closes. :mad:

    Ouch! Is there any way to hide the jailbreak from apps like this?

    Why is it so easy for the app to detect that the iPad is jailbroken in the first place? Seems like a poor hack if every app can tell it's been done.

    xCon might work. If not, it may be able to be added.
