    I'd have to agree somewhat. I think the video quality is fine with my Slingbox HD Pro and my iPad, but the audio is nearly always out of sync and the right and left audio channels are also out of sync with each other. That's just the iPad app. It's fine on a laptop.

    I have an upload bandwidth of 10 Mbps.

    I have 25 Mb upload with Fios. It would be nice if Tivo allowed you to turn on out of network streaming with the appropriate caveats or warning messages. With 4g coming on the iphone soon the download speeds should be sufficient and my upload speed at 25 Mb should be more than enough.

    What about the Vulkano? I use the Hava HD Platinum which is the model prior to the Vulkano and I have no issues connecting to it over my cell phone, Kindle Fire, and laptops over WiFi at hotels and other locations. Plus no audio sync issues.

    I'm on the FiOS 150/65 tier. But I also had no issues when I was on the 35/35 tier.

    I see Amazon announced the new Kindle Fire models. Now I really hope TiVo gets an app out for android soon for the Stream. I plan on replacing my old 7" Fire with the new 7" version and also getting one of the new 8.9" ones. So it would be nice to have the stream working with them.

    I just ordered one today, and have a question - what type of AC plug does it use?

    I have one open slot on a power strip, and a wall-wart won't fit. I watched an unboxing on YouTube, but he never took the power adaptor out of the wrapping.

    On public networks, people hog all the bandwidth with stuff like.... oh, STREAMING VIDEO (or downloading huge crap. What crap? Typically video). You can have a network that serves many dozens of typical web site viewing users without a hitch. Throw several video streamers on there and it not only makes it impossible to stream video for anyone, but it ruins even the web browsing experience for everyone NOT hogging bandwidth.

    I personally welcome properly configured throttling to punish those who would ruin it for everyone.

    Wall wart. It's fairly narrow, about as wide as a regular two prong plug, but about 3" long.

    If you have to worry about the space on your power strip, I'd go pick up one of those short "extension cords" that are made for just this purpose. Most electronics or office supply stores will have them.

    Cool, thanks for the info and suggestion! Windracer - thanks for the link, I just ordered a set of those - should come in handy. :up:

    I was really on the fence about the Stream device, but after I ordered it, the more I think about it the more I'm excited to get it. I know there's a lot of Android users that are frustrated, and the lack of internet streaming seems limiting - albeit I'm sure that's not a TiVo decision. But knowing the limitations going in, I can see this feature being very useful in my household.

    Our 2 person, 2-story household only has one TV hooked up to cable via the TiVo Premiere, yet each person has an iPad. Being able to watch TiVo Live or recorded shows from any room in the house really makes sense for us. The bedroom, breakfast nook, upstairs studio, kitchen, maybe even the backyard can all have TiVo now! :cool:

    There seems to be a lot of people asking "who needs this transcoding device?" Well... me, for one.

    Just to be Clear.. You can not watch Live TV on the Stream.. you can watch as it is being recorded

    My understanding is, using the iPad TiVo app, I will be able to look at the current guide data, click on a show, and select "watch on iPad" - as long as one of the TiVo's tuner is available.

    Is this correct? Or do I select "record this show" and then "watch this on iPad"?

    I believe that "watch on iPad" will start a recording, which then lets you watch on the iPad. Pretty sure I read that in another thread.

    TWCableTV's app checks for VPN too, but there are a few tweaks out there that have managed to circumvent it. FakeTimeWarner was one. 3G Unrestrictor did too -- you may want to try it (in conjunction with xCon.)

    I got a tweet back from the Xcon developer that he's working on updating the app to fix the Tivo app
