    I currently have a series 3 box and have used the iPhone app for some basic functions. Many of the functions are grayed out and say only available for Premiere and Roamio. Do these functions work on a 2 tuner premiere or only the 4 tuner versions and does it require tivo stream?

    If you want to stream or download using iPhone or ipad, you need any premiere or basic roamio (with tivo stream add on). Tivo plus and pro come with tivo stream built in.

    What functions? The iPhone app does everything on my Premieres, but I don't know anything about streaming as I would need a TiVo Steam.

    Series 3 are quite limited in that department, only for the guide and no shows.

    If you mean scheduling/to do list, you can do that on Premiere WITHOUT a stream.. To actually download or stream shows, you need a Premiere or Roamio.. and as stated, Premieres AND the lowest end Roamio require separate Tivo Stream.. higher than that have the stream functionality built in.

    If you want to buy a used Stream, I have one (since I have a Premiere 4 before I got the Roamio, and got a now unused Tivo Stream too).
