    Right, and considering that Tivo doesn't even support switches with an unmanaged switch being one of the more easier to connect network devices, I'm not sure how support will handle trying to instruct customers on port forwarding.

    What makes you think port fordwarding is even going to be needed?

    Because there's an Out-Of-Home page on the Stream web server with port forwarding setup (which may be easy to setup automatically with certain routers but will likely require manually setting other routers):

    Hummmm to many routers to make this work right. And I have a Roamio not a Stream. But we will see tomorrow. Thanks for the info.

    Me too. The Roamio Stream has it's own IP (different than Roamio IP with different MAC) and web server which is what that screen capture is from.

    For the life of me I cannot find that Stream information screen in my Roamio Pro. Is it under Settings/Account & System Information? I just got the TiVo App update by the way asking me now if I want to do OOH streaming. So it seems it was rolled out.

    iOS app update now available for OOH streaming. Change log specifically mentions this is not yet available for stand-alone streams.

    Just noticed there is an update to the TiVo app in the AppStore with updates for OOH.

    So, who's going to be the first to post whether streaming is restricted by the CCI byte?

    It is restricted.

    You get the message "Streaming is prohibited by the copyright holder while you are away from your home network".

    It also did not work on my first try with VPN.

    I didn't have time to experiment much.

    I can confirm streaming:

    - Does NOT work over the cell network (as expected)

    - DOES work if you have both an iPhone and iPad and setup a hotspot on your iPhone and connect your iPad to it.

    Also, you can download a show while on the cell network it seems.

    GOOD news, though.

    If you START watching a show while "tethered" to the iPad, then turn off the iPad hotspot, the show will continue to stream normally via the iPhones LTE connection.

    It seems the limit to wifi outside home is artificially limiting. I'm sure they are taking baby steps.

    Also, I had to make NO changes to my router to get OOH streaming to work.

    My setup is Comcast HSI, SMC gateway in bridge mode, Airport Extreme (4th Gen), Roamio Plus connected via ethernet.

    No port changes here too, with a TimeCapsule/Airport. Nice.

    Link to press release. It doesn't offer much in the way of details.

    Damn!
    You have to be on your home network to do the initial stream setup, then can go OOH :(

    Im sitting at work and borrowed one of our iPads and installed the app hoping to slack off a bit today.

    ...guess Ill have to do actual work instead
