    It seems Tivo Updated the IOS app to work out of home but only if you have a Roamio Plus or Pro. An article claims only when on a wifi network for now.

    No word on the if the stand alone stream will get OOH.

    I don't read twitter regularly so she said most likely 2 to 3 weeks later for stand alone stream....

    Excellent... I can't wait. Streaming remote is great, being able to download/transfer recordings is even better! :)

    I just tried to remotely watch something from work (on iPhone on Wifi) from my Roamio at home. I could see the shows but when I tried to Watch it said some options aren't available, connect to your local wifi network that the Tivo is on. I wonder if it makes a difference that I use TWC. They've always had everything blocked.

    Did you set it up at home first? You have to set it up on your home network first before OOH streaming is available.

    Just curious, when you say set up at home. What exactly do you mean? Is there a setting on the TiVo I need to follow. I just figured that when I signed back into the iPhone TiVo app it would work.

    Launch your TiVo app while in your home network. For me the streaming setup dialog automatically popped up and asked if I wanted to setup for remote streaming.

    You may need to touch to gear icon on the very top menu bar if it doesn't automatically prompt you.

    Houston,...
    I think you have setup at home so the app can determine your external IP address.

    They said they use a proxy so I assume your Roamio/Stream tells the proxy your public IP address when it calls home. They said they are working on a way to do manual port forwarding instead, but it's not yet active.

    I assume the setup at home is a way to verify that the device is allowed to access the Stream. Without it anyone could log into your network using your TiVo email/password and download recordings, delete recordings, edit your SPs, etc...

    So at the moment, streaming on an iPad OUTSIDE of my home network from a Premiere is still a no-go?
    If and when it ever is possible, would a service like DynDns.org be used?

    It shouldn't be necessary... Unless the cable companies come up with some schemes to block this. TiVo machines stay in contact with the central TiVo service, so they probably have their own (or use another) service on your behalf.

    They wouldn't launch this as a public feature if it required all kinds of manual proxy and port forward setup. (I hope) ;)

    No hoops to jump through, the TiVo sets everything up and it is painless.

    Margret said in a couple of weeks, so I expect you will see it as soon as they complete the fall release...

    Like the Roamio, I think they will wait to turn the switch on for the entire staged release process to be completed, so don't expect it to be available the day you personally get your update.

    Android is coming in 2014 and we are hoping for a browser based Web App, but no indication on if or when on that.

    The file sizes for new downloads to an iPhone from a Stream are much smaller than they used to be this morning which I imagine is an indicator of impending streaming capability.

    It sholdn't have to do setup again. One thing when I setup my iPhone the first time it didn't show the OOH option. I had to manually go through setup again, at home, and that time it showed the OOH option and allowed me to set it up properly.
