    My Stream seems to crash every time I try to use any trick play functions. The only way to get it to start streaming again is to reboot it. Anyone else?

    Yep. Let's just shut out 99.9% of prospective customers at launch.

    Different topic, though.

    I emailed him about an issue that I had with xcon and CoxTV connect. He emailed me back pretty quick with some helpful info.

    Turns out it was something that Cox had done on their end. It works great now.

    Also, I went ahead a bought the xCon Alias. I was glad to donate some money because this program really helped me out.

    Got home and the Stream was on the doorstep. Setup was a snap, I simply plugged it into my network, downloaded the TiVo app, and the app discovered the Stream and did the rest.. took about 10 minutes for the Stream to update software and auto-configure itself.

    Watched a couple of things so far and the quality looks quite good. Trick play controls working very well too... It is very responsive... makes my Sling app on the iPad look slow as molasses by comparison and the quality on the Sling is not as good either.

    I sent a note to the xCon developer, hopefully he/she can add the TiVo app pretty quickly.

    Thanks for letting us know. I know not to update my app, and not buy a stream.

    I pre-ordered the Stream and it shipped yesterday via UPS Next Day Air. Unfortunately, it went to the Louisville, KY sort facility last night and got left there in error so it's rescheduled for delivery tomorrow. #$%^

    My TiVo seemed to have a problem finding the Stream at first as well. I waited a little while but it just didn't seem to find it. Rebooted the router - still no joy... On a lark, I opened my router console and pinged the Stream. Once I did that the TiVo app found the device right away. I am not sure if it was the "ping" or just enough time has passed, but everything seems to be working great now.

    I think your stats are a little off - especially since tablets are really the target devices, phones are an added value. But I am sure Android will be available soon.

    I agree. The Android App will come.

    So, for grins I plugged my Kill-A-Watt into the Stream to check on power consumption. It is 7-8 watts standby. When you are streaming it can rise to 9 watts, with one stream anyway.

    This tells me it's not particularly efficient, as it's sucking quite a lot of juice when it is sitting there doing nothing.

    Also, it might not be a bad idea to throw this guy on a UPS if you have one in the vicinity of your Stream. It took a bit of screwing around with the app and stream to get it to re-connect after having killed power to the unit temporarily. Recovery does not look to be very graceful.

    Mine finally came. I've got it hooked up and it's updating the software now.

    First thing I noticed is that it's kind of loud. The fan is a bit whiny. Anyone else hear it? Or did I get a loud one?

    Edit: Noise seems to be some sort of vibration. If I turn it on it's side it's a lot quieter

    I was able to roll back to the previous version (v1.9.1) to get the app working again on my jailbroken devices. Guess I'll wait and see if the xCon guys can come up with a fix for us.

    Can't stream live shows. Keep getting an error that there are already four streams active. Um, no there aren't. WTF.

    So, I moved a ripped movie from from my server to the Premier and then from the Premier to the IOS app. A couple of observations...

    The movie transfers to the iPad with a title of To Be Announced. It shows on the NPL on both the iPad and the TiVo with the FILE NAME, however, it seems to be using the metadata name to drive the naming on the "On iPad" file list. Very disapointing...

    You can begin a transfer to the ipad while the transfer to the TiVo is still in progress. The is actually not that suprising considering how it works with live TV, but it is nice and a time saver.

    I wonder if we can convince TiVo to change the Mobile Playing List (MPL) to pull file name as opposed to the metadata name, similar to the NPL

    So far, I love the device!

    I am really upset that TiVo has decided to enter a fight with the jailbreak community. They sold this device to me under false pretences and I will be returning it within the 30 day return period if the issue is not resolved.

    I have faith in the jailbreak community, they love a challenge and will respond successfully IMO.

    Ask yourself why? Why has TiVo the company suddenly decided to be jailbreak police? There will soon be all kinds of negative commentary on the web as the tech community does not like this kind of sneaky behavior. TiVo has always encouraged and even worked with the hacking community as it allowed its own hardware to be hacked and upgraded. Why?

    What possible reason would TiVo the company suddenly decide to kiss up to Apple the company and all the negatives that will come with this action against the tech community.

    You heard it here first. TiVo has tipped its hand. Apple and TiVo are in talks for Apple to acquire TiVo. This is the only reason I can come up with. Apple would do this if Apple owned TiVo. TiVo as an independent company has absolutely no other incentive to do this!

    I have confidence in the jailbreak community. Let's get this fixed!

    This is a Cablelabs requirement. Its out of TiVo's control.
