I did get an email confirming my registration in the sweepstakes!
You may be the lucky winner of a chance to buy a pre-release beta of this unfinished product!
Can it be any worse than the Tivo Premiere? I'm still waiting for the damn HDUI to be finished, and still experiencing frequent bugs.
I don't know why you all are so fussy about this, ok so yeah it's not all free but you get a chance to get one before anyone else. If it's like any other TiVo Hardware [redacted] program if there are problems related at the hardware level they replace it for free and it it dies they typically replace it for free too.
+1 I have a Roku... I just need for Tivo to create an app for it that will let me watch my shows on it.
The Roku would have trouble decoding the MPEG-2 videos especially over WiFi. I do see the possibility of a Roku app that would be able to receive video from the Stream or the built-in transcoding of the Pace XG1 or next generation series 5 boxes.
I don't. TiVo doesn't work well with other companies, and that kind of collaboration could very well lead to them selling less TiVo-branded hardware. Why in the world would they work with Roku?
Not if it's designed to work with the transcoder box. In that case the Roku would really just be replacing the iPad for streaming on the local network.
Although they may prefer you buy an IP-STB for streaming directly to TVs.
It's now being called the "TiVo Mini."
Maybe. Transfer your Tivo recordings to a pc. Link the folder to Plex Server and then stream. That might work.
Still no pricing on this new box. Come on already.
For those that win the chance to pre-order, should they just send TiVo a blank check?
I am bummed that I can't enter twice, to possibly win the lucky chance to be entered onto the wait list in order to maybe be chosen as a potential buyer to pre-order this product still-in-beta!
Well, you could spend the day creating gmail or hotmail addresses...
Even though is says there will be a limited number of "winners", I wonder if we'll all "win" and be given a chance to spend our money.
"Limit 1 entry per natural person/email address" confused me.
Well, I signed up. was figuring on buying one anyway just to play with. Hope to make it useful at some point. I know when released, like most Tivo products, there will be flaws that make it less than useful. Supporting IOS only is one of them and of no use to me. However, many other devices can play the very same content as any idevice.
EDIT - wrong thread...
This thread is all about a contest to win a chance to pre-order a TiVo Stream.
Derp my bad, I clicked on the wrong thread in my subscriptions list and thought I was in the Mini thread.
I suppose this might work, but I would prefer a more elegant solution - ideally AppleTV/Roku app that sees my Tivo via the network. One can dream...
