    I do not see this being a worthy contender to Slingbox until there is a viewing option for PC/Laptop viewing.

    I'm guessing that is what is coming Thursday.

    While I agree that PC / Laptop viewing is going to be an important part of this ecosystem, I think it is very important for TiVo to prove they can deliver with this technology.

    This is tough tech to do correctly and in a way that is going to be compelling to consumers.

    I am sure we will have fans pining for all of the major platforms:

    • Windows 8 Metro App
    • Windows Desktop App
    • Windows Phone App
    • IOS Phone App
    • IOS Tablet App
    • Apple PC App
    • Android Phone App
    • Android Tablet App

    Question:

    I wonder if people are hoping to use a PC version as a cheaper version of the Mini?

    Anyone else notice in the iOS app that "Watch Now" is now an option when away from your home network? The buttons for watching on TV or on iPhone are greyed out though.

    It's always been there for me but it gives some sort of message when you're not on your home network.

    Not seeing any of this. Stream is still running software v. 19.1.2a.01-6 (dtd06/20/13). I've restarted the device, and forced a service call.

    This is on my Roamio Pro that has the 20.3.7 software. My guess is the standalone units haven't got a software upgrade yet if that's what you are looking at.
    Here's a screenshot:

    Apparently Margret posted on twitter that the standalone Stream wont get OOH streaming for a few more weeks. Probably making this a Roamio only feature for a few weeks to boost sales and reviews.

    Does your [embedded] stream [inside your Roamio Pro] report software version 20.3.7.1a (from its webpage)?

    Thanks. that's a newer version than has been rolled out to the standalone streams, so likely the "embedded stream" update was part and parcel of the 2013 Fall Update (which thus far, has only been sent to Series 5 devices [Roamio's and Minis]).

    We should expect standalone streams to receive this when the series 4 units get the Fall Update.

    As long as it doesn't turn into months and months delay like Android - then a staged release shouldn't be that big of a deal.

    Until a day ago, we weren't even sure the Premiere line would have OOH streaming functionality.

    It could only boost sales for Apple users since us Android users are still SOL.

    Question????
    Will I need to do anything on my end for this to start working? I have Jury duty tomorrow and would like to watch my Roamio at the court house.

    It is possible that you may need to update the IOS app - could also be that TiVo just needs to flip a switch, but I wouldn't think it would require any setup.

    Btw - It will only work on wifi, so I hope the court house has wifi!

    You will have to setup port forwarding in your router by the looks of it.

    That scares me... Most people have no idea how to log into their routers.
