    I cannot understand why streaming a show requires me to record it. Why cant it stream without recording.

    I think it's because unlike the Mini streaming on the local higher speed network, there has to be a way to buffer the Stream data to outside the local home network as the bandwidth can be limited once you are off your local home network.

    It is rather hocky, at least it should delete the recorded channel once the stream session is complete.

    All of a tivo's tuners are being recorded all the time.

    I'm sure the recording was their easiest approach to reserve the tuner for streaming when it was programmed. While it makes sense for the unit to auto-delete such recording, I bet someone somewhere would complain about such a deletion...

    The Stream was released long before dynamic tuner allocation existed on the TiVo. Now that it's here we'll likely see the Stream get upgraded to support real live TV eventually. Although I doubt it's high priority, so it could be a ways off.
