    Mine is going through a HomePlug network, which is slower then 802.11n, and it works fine. Not a direct analog, but I'm betting it'll work OK if you're just streaming one show at a time.

    Just to confirm, this cannot stream to the Internet a la sling box?

    No local streaming only. Unless you setup some sort of VPN so your iPad appears as if it's on the local network. However for that to work you'd need a pretty good upload speed on your internet connection because it can not dynamically adjust the quality to match bandwidth. It just streams in the format it streams and you need enough bandwidth to handle it.

    The TiVo.com/stream page is now active and the home page has been updated to feature the Stream. Slightly misleading, as the target is currently iOS devices only (at least for now)

    Used my Stream to watch the (time-shifted) football game on my iPad last night. In general, I am very pleased with the experience. The video quality is excellent, I only had a couple momentary pauses while watching the video (could very well have been a glitch in the original video material), and it just came across as a very professional implementation for a 1.0 release of something this complicated.

    I did have a few crashes of the app, mostly when exiting the video viewing screen. Restarting the app was quick, and it picked up easily.

    Using the right swipe to do 30-second skip and left swipe to do 8-second rewind is really nice. Someone mentioned above that they thought the right-swipe for 30-second skip was backwards -- I disagree, you just swipe in the direction you want to go on the time bar.

    Nice job Tivo!!

    Perhaps you know, but I have a 15MB upload....you think that'd work assuming I can get a vpn going?

    Yup, no change. I really wish these things were available in Best Buy already so that I could just go buy a new one. I ordered a new one yesterday from TiVo, and was told it would still ship via overnight, so I'm hoping I'll have a new one tomorrow. If it ships ground, I'll probably have to wait a week. Maybe they'll be in Best Buy by then.

    A question for those that already have a Tivo Stream and multiple Tivos.

    From the Tivo IOS app, is it possible to initiate a transfer from another Tivo (a non premier) to a Tivo premier and watch it via Tivo Stream?

    The premier has most of the shows the family watches. The other S3 Tivos have shows that I would watch via Tivo Stream on the Tivo app. I know Tivo Stream can not communicate to S3 Tivos, but I want to route the show via the S4 to Tivo Stream.

    It does not do that. All it can do is stream or sideload a show TO an iDevice, not another TiVo.

    Reread what he's asking. He's asking if you can transfer a show from a S3 to a Premiere and then from there stream it to the Stream. Based on what I've read, I believe the answer is yes.

    He said something about initiating the transfer from the iOS app, in other words using it to move the recording and then have the Stream start up with it. I'm pretty sure that's all not gonna work.

    The answer is absolutely yes - I tried that yesterday. You can also transfer a movie from an external library to the Premier and initiate a stream. Also both the stream and sideload can be intiated while the transfer is still active.

    So in other words you can be MRV'ing a video from an S3 and sideloading it to your TiVo at the same time!

    Riverview,...
    Wow. Really impressed with its streaming ability. Pretty flawless quality. I've had no trick play issues (although I haven't watched much). I need to do more testing, but after setting up my wife's phone, it kicked me out on my phone (maybe it was just because of the initial setup on a 2nd device).

    Now to the problem. I tried downloading at best quality and standard. Absolutely horrible. In the best quality, there are "shifted video lines" really distorting the video. On standard quality, it is simply more "shifted video lines". I can't imagine every watching downloaded shows like that. I'll try again tonight. I'm not sure what "best" really means. Ideally, there'd be 3 choices: completely uncompressed video, slightly compressed and highly compressed. I know it would be large, but I'd like the choice.

    Does anyone else have the "shifted video lines" problem with downloads?
