Out-Of-Home Streaming coming soon!
Can't wait to try it.
Still wish they offered support for PCs and Android. I know Android support is coming but I haven't heard anything about PC support.
So this is:

My work productivity is going to collapse if I can stream Tivo over my work's wifi network...
Now, if I only had a Roamio....
I really hope this opens up to eventually streaming shows to other TiVos off network. When I am stuck at my parents, I would love to be able watch my shows via my TiVo there. It could still transcode with the Stream so it wasn't the full size recording as long as the quality looked good enough.
Great find, in time for the weekend's football games.
I am interested to see if it works reliably. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of access to wifi signals on most days and hotel wifi is so throttled you can barely browse simple web sites.
Just a thought - you may not actually need a Roamio for this to work, but I may be wrong. I think the Stream is doing most of the heavy listing.
We shall see...
It will work on the Premieres when they get the update later this month I believe.
I'm interesting in finding out how much bandwidth it needs and assuming (hoping) the streaming is adaptive how little bandwidth it (or myself based on quality) can tolerate. I have the upstream but download can vary greatly depending on location, especially since I believe it was stated previously this will be wifi only and not 4G LTE enabled.
I think the understanding and expectation from most is that the stream is doing all of the work. I can't see any reason why the standalone stream wouldn't receive an update very soon after this to enable streaming from the Roamio Basic and then shortly thereafter, the Premieres.
The current streams aren't that bad. Best quality is only 2.3Mbps and Standard is 1.4Mbps. I'm sure adaptive streaming will have more levels for various bandwidth conditions, but even Best is below the threshold of most modern broadband.
I was just going to post I noticed OOH information on the sysinfo page when I saw this thread. Anyway, if you visit the stream sysinfo page there's now a "Out-Of-Home" button
On that page there is some port forwarding setup (ports 49151 and 49152).
will compare to my ipad slingbox app
I've got several Android tablets and it would be nice if I could use them to stream from my Roamio Pro.
Early next year for Android is the best estimate.
Will an updated TiVo app for ios be required?
I expect that it will be required, yes...
I think I speak for everyone - including TiVo, that it has taken far too long and not having Android is really keeping them from being able to broadly market this to the type of consumer that will really geek out over the tech.
I also think they need to support a new PC version as well.
