What phone number? can you PM me the details?
Me too, I want to order one.
Instead of making this a stupid sweepstake they should have just made it the first 600 people to call and order. Half the people who "won" probably aren't even going to buy
i had to pay tax Order Total: $ 146.19
I called the number in the "Shop by Phone" section on TiVo.com, which is (877)289-8486.
what about shows I transfer to my premier from my S3? Will I be able to steam the shows?
I'd be surprised if they end up with 600 preorders. If I knew for sure that the Stream would be available at Amazon on 9/5, I would just wait and save the shipping cost.
Did you select option 1 (order a tivo box) or option 2 (other stuff) ?
No. You'll only be able to stream from a Premiere unit. This basically taps into the Multi-Room Streaming capability of Premiere units. MRS doesn't work with S3 units, so neither will this.
I don't think Dan read your post correctly. You can stream any recordings from your Premiere. So if you copied recordings from an S3 to the Premiere, that should work fine.
You're right I read it backwards. I thought he was asking about streaming shows he transferred to the S3 from the Premiere. If you're transferring from the S3 to the Premiere then that will work, but you'll have to wait for the transfer to finish before you can start watching.
time the all read backwards I ok That's
Decisions, decisions. I really want one of these, but I have an Amazon gift card worth enough to cover it. If I knew for sure it would be available on Amazon soon I'd just wait, but if not then I'll just pay TiVo the $150 and get it now.
I was not a "sweepstakes winner", but had no issues ordering one. In the eyes of TiVo, we are all winners I guess...
In the eyes of Charlie Sheen, "Duh! Winning!"
Correction- watch a show on your iphone or ipad only, as it's being recorded
If it supported the #1smartphone platform and #2 tablet platform, I would jump on it for $129. Let the waiting begin...
No email. I thought for sure everyone would be a "winner" since the prize is a chance to pay MSRP+shipping+tax for the product.
#2 of 2. I bet it's #3 by the end of next year.
I've mentioned this before but the main problem with Android is segmentation. It may be the #1 smartphone platform, but there are dozens of different versions and configurations you have to account for when writing an app. It's a PITA!
Plus I think the vast majority of users of this device are going to use tablets for viewing, which right now means a iPads. Phones are just too small to provide an enjoyable video viewing experience for most people. (although some of those new Android "phones" are damn near tablets)
I would take that bet
I agree that fragmentation can be an issue, but properly written Android apps (of which many are not) can overcome most of those issues. It will never be perfect, nor will it be as easy as targeting a locked-up, single-vendor, low-choice, walled-garden product like Apple phones/tablets.
Yet Apple has it's own mini-fragmentation going on with its own several models now (each with different processing power, resolution, screen size, GPU capabilities, and maximum OS rev) and the mini ipad coming out soon to further muddy it.
I have to admit, I am far less interested in a using a phone with this stuff than my Xoom (tablet). Even though I have a "superphone" (Evo LTE) watching even a large phone screen that is "only" 4.7" while somewhere else AT HOME is probably not something terribly wonderful. Nexus 7? Probably. 10" Xoom/Infiniti/whatever.... certainly.
I think you and I are probably in the majority, but who knows, I have been surprised by such things in the past.
