    Works great, setup both my iPad and iPhone at home after downloading the new version, now in the office on my MiFi streaming shows.

    does your initial stream from a Roamio Pro have to be done from your home network ?

    I wonder the data consumption per hour will be via LTE in this mode. Might just not be feasible for most data plans.

    You're lucky if you can bring it with you. In my county you can't bring in any electronic devices with a camera to the courthouse, so cellphones and tablets have to be left in the car.

    I've only got the shared 1GB plan.....so I only tested with it today to see if my setup was working. Normally I wouldn't think of streaming on my LTE plan.

    The download sizes over the cell network are:

    For "The League" - 30 minute show in HD I get the following choices:
    Basic - 183MB
    Medium - 326MB
    Best - 559MB

    For Law & Order SVU, 1 hour show in HD:
    Basic - 355MB
    Medium - 631MB
    Best - 1GB

    SO why is it restricted over the cell network? My cellular speed is typically many, many, many times faster than any public WiFi network.

    I still have unlimited 4G data on Verizon. It's rare for me to use a Wi-Fi network since I can get 4G pretty much anywhere in the DC area. I hope when it comes to android that cellular streaming will be enabled. Because having to connect to the WiFi at work or a public WiFi network would not work very well since bandwidth is typically restricted per user.

    App is working well so far. All it took was an update from the AppStore. My Roamio did not update as far as I know. You can not stream a show over LTE but you can download it.

    Not sure, especially these days with LTE now everywhere.

    From TiVO pr: "The issue is very low bitrate support. Apple's low bitrate for cellular requirement is below what we can do right now."

    To which I asked what the current bitrate is and they replied, 290Kbps to 2Mbps.

    From Engadget's website

    "Android support and streaming via 4G/LTE is on the schedule next year -- on iOS the minimum supported bandwidth needs more tweaking to meet Apple's maximum bitrate for cellular."

    In your web browser enter this info

    http://Stream IP Address:49152/sysinfo

    With the Stream IP address inside the Roamio Plus/Pro. Mine is one higher than the IP address of my Roamio Pro.

    I know it is a long shot, but has anyone tested any mpeg4 channels since the update ?

    Can't say I'm surprised, but that sucks ... it will severely limit its usefulness for me. :(

    It's not working for me. Updated the apps in both ipad and iphone. Connected to a different wifi network but not streaming. The new app tells me I am away from my home network and the Watch Button is no longer grayed out but when I click on it it tells me some functions are not supported. Thoughts?

    I tried deleting apps and reinstalling, rebooting devices, etc. All no good.

    Are you on your home network? Based on previous comments, there is some sort of initial setup that must be completed within your home network.

    Ok, just figured it out. After updating the new apps I need to do a setup on the home network and then I can stream outside of the house.

    Do you need to check Port Forwarding Enabled box? Not checked on my iPad mini. And do you need to forward ports in you router? If so that is not a problem.

    So you can't stream copy protected channels which sucks but not surprising. And it seems TiVo really doesn't have the adaptive bitrate streaming working at all. It's like they just have a single bitrate stream. It certainly will not replace my Slingbox anytime soon. I really hope they can figure out adaptive streaming one day and until they can provide PC support, it really isn't that interesting to me.
