    Hello, I can stream to my ipad just fine in home. The quality really suchs OOH though, just 2 bars. Question 1, Is there a way to improve the OOH quality?

    Question 2, when I try to play the stream through my ipad to my TV via the Apple Lightning HDMI adapter I get a "mirroring not allowed" type of message. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks, Mike (62 in Seattle) :confused:

    Question 1) TiVo is working on improvements to OOH streaming, really nothing you can do at this time.

    Question 2) You are not doing anything wrong this is by design. Some folks have implemented same jailbreak tools to make this work, but that is the only way. TiVo / Content owners do not want you driving a big screen with an IOS device.

    To improve OOH quality simply download instead of stream. You will have to wait a few minutes for buffer to build up before you start watching but quality will be much better than streaming.

    Mike, I just bought an iPad Mini, intending to stream some video content from the web (thru the iPad) to the big screen TV, using the iPad's AirDrop function. From what I have learned that will require an Apple TV between the iPad and the television. Check this URL:

    to see the procedure to enable AirPlay mirroring on IOS7 devices. The IOS device and the AppleTV will need to be on the same wifi network.

    You're not doing anything wrong. HDMI out is disabled by the Tivo App. You can not connect an iPhone or iPad to a TV and try to use the Tivo app to stream to the TV.

    If you jail break you can disable that limitation.
