    Hopefully this is fixed soon since FiOS added four more H.264 channels last week with maybe more coming in September.

    Of course it really doesn't do me any good until Android support comes to the Stream anyway.

    Is there even a way to test the stream in my Roamio Pro without using an Apple product? IS there some way to test it in Windows.

    Nope. Only the iOS app can talk to the Stream.

    You can connect to it with a browser at least to check that it responds:
    http://<Roamio IP>:49152/sysinfo

    My daughter claims that the Roamio stream is not working with her iPad Mini, but refuses to let me touch her iPad to try and debug. I'm not too concerned about it as I have no use for the stream function myself...

    I guess that's one way to get out of support duty. :)

    Thanks!

    That brought up a menu that showed the time, software version, build date, streaming state, transcode status, temperature, etc..

    What channels did they add in mp4? Was one of them FXX-HD (584)?

    Still no resolution with the Stream and H.264. I cannot believe they didn't see this coming.

    Yeah, I tried to dump a BeInSport show onto my Tivo last week and it failed. Not so cool...

    The S1 DirecTiVos were fixed (by DirecTV), but the S1 Standalone units were not fixed. A user came up with a hack and after much grousing TiVo incorporated the hack and rolled it out. The hack involves two reboots per DST switch.

    I predict the S3s will get MPEG4/H264 support when my S1 unit gets folders/groups.


    BTW On the S1 DTiVos they did get one new feature - skip button now takes you to the end AND beginning of the Now Playing screen - S1 SA never got it.

    Was hoping to get the Stream update for out of home streaming to see if maybe they might have snuck in an update to support MPEG4. I didn't get it on the first go round apparently so I can't try it out. I love my Tivo Stream but hate being restricted to local channels only. :(

    Did anyone else with this problem get the newest Stream update yet?

    I think someone in the Roamio forum tested it and said it still did not work with MPEG-4 channels. Since the version number is the same for standalone units I wouldn't expect it to work there either.

    Well, thanks for checking. I'll just keep hoping for another update then.

    Nothing has changed - H.264 not functional. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that current Stream hardware cannot support it. For example, perhaps H.264 decoding is not possible.

    Does anyone have a full list of FIOS channels that have moved to MPEG4? I recently (black friday) invested in a Roamio and 2 Mini's. If it effects a significant amount of FIOS channels I may end up returning my units. Out of Home Streaming (and more importantly, downloading) was a big part of my upgrade justification. I'll be more than a little ticked if I can't stream/download anything but local channels.

    I believe is this is the same issue, on Verizon FiOS BioHD will not transfer/stream to an iPAD from a Roamio plus and even worse, it actually crashes the stream portion of the Roamio.

    I called TiVo's support on this about a week or so ago and they ended up logging a bug. Oddly enough the non HD version of the Bio channel works fine with the Stream.

    That would be very short sighted of them. Especially since the same hardware is in the Roamio units. There may not be much H.264 out there right now, but over the lifespan of a Roamio it's likely to become much more wide spread.
