    Nothing helpful in this post - just sharing. ;)

    So tonight I found myself sitting in my car for a couple hours waiting on my daughter - dads you know the drill... Knowing that I would be sitting for a while, I side-loaded a movie from my media server to the TiVo app. (Battle Los Angeles)

    I connected the iPad to the Bluetooth audio in the car, leaned the iPad on the steering wheel and watched a movie with huge sound!

    I use the stream quite a bit and for the most part it has worked great!

    Are all you channels unprotected? All of my movie channels are protected and can't be sideloaded. :(

    I have FIOS, so not too much of a problem with copy protection - but this was not a TiVo recording...

    This movie was from one of my DVD archives. Moved it to the Premier and side loaded it to the iPad. Very quick and easy to do.

    I travel quite a bit so I am really happy how easy this is....

    I have fios also and your statement used to be true up until a month or so ago. Fios has recently started to lock down all of the pay stations.

    FIOS didn't - the content owners did...

    I shut down HBO, Showtome, et al years ago. With Redbox I get plenty of premium movies at a much cheaper price.

    FIOS most certainly did. They control the mechanism.

    Control is the operative word in my mind... FIOS didn't decide to block the premium channels they were obligated to block them.

    Your definition of control is different then mine.

    The last time I checked it was only HBO and Cinemax. The several other Premium movie channels didn't have an issue. Has this changed?

    So far only HBO and Cinemax for me, and we got a mail notification about it from FIOS.
