    I have setup Out of home streaming with my Roamio Pro. I can stream in the home to the mobile ios app just fine. When out of the home, I can see My Shows on the Roamio Pro on the ios app and I can schedule new recordings just fine.

    I have a content filter installed (iBoss Home) that acts as my DHCP server in the home. Even though I have set up the Roamio's IP address to have no content filtering, when the content filter is enabled I cannot get out of home streaming working. I disabled the content filter today and I can stream out of the home just fine.

    I have a slingbox that can stream just fine out of the home when my content filter is enabled (and the slingbox IP address has no filtering).

    Anyone know if I need to do port forwarding or any other tricks for the Roamio Pro?

    The OOH feature is currently using a proxy to function. Your content filter probably blocks all proxies because they can be used to bypass content filters. TiVo said that a future update will enable internal port forwarding to be used instead, which is what Slingbox does. But that update isn't expected until sometime next year.

    Mission...
    Slingbox I think tries to use UPNP if available since I didn't have to configure manual port forwarding for it to work. UPNP disturbs me a little because it can be a security hole and at least on my router I don't see any indication of when it is being used or not. There is a router setting to enable/disable UPNP, but no logging related to UPNP.

    Thanks Dan - do you know what address/URL Tivo is using for the proxy server? Maybe I could allow the URL for the proxy server on my content filter

    I don't. It's not listed on the system info page and because it's an iOS app there is really no easy way to sniff it. Someone with more time and more skills then I might be able to figure it out by routing it through a secondary proxy or trapping NAT traffic.

    I don't have a URL but my router log shows that while downloading over LTE I have high egress traffic to IP 136.179.5.155 on port 1195. A whois ultimately revealed it to be a company in Alviso, CA by the name of Tivo, Inc. :)

    According to a reverse DNS lookup service that resolves to something on switchnap.com

    They are a service provider, the IP block is Tivo's if you keep following the chain.

    Maybe it would be as easy as allowing all tivo.com traffic?
