    Just wondering - if someone is using the Tivo to watch something - and another party wants to use a TiVo Stream for viewing another recorded show elsewhere - can BOTH watch simultaneously?

    Edit - I've just seen this - "With support for up to four streams at once, users can now watch previously recorded and currently recording content over their home network" - so maybe that's the answer. This at least implies 4 different mobile users could be simultaneously playing 4 different shows off of one Tivo Premiere?

    To stream four shows you need two Premieres. Each Premiere has a limit of three streams.

    I think the question was regarding streaming remotely + watching locally.

    AFAIK, you can do the following simultaneously with one Premiere + one Stream:
    • watch live or previously recorded show on TV
    • record as many shows as you have tuners (minus 1 if you are watching live TV)
    • stream up to 3 shows - previously recorded or in process of recording

    Thanks pcbrew - so then - One Premiere and one Stream box each gets you -

    One local playback watching live TV or a recording.
    Up to 3 other playbacks from mobile devices simultaneously???

    I just wanted to make sure that if someone is watching a recording on the Tivo - someone else can still play another recording over the WLAN from that same Premiere.

    3 (total) streams watchers of recordings is beyond what I expected - great!

    That is correct.
