    that's fine, I'll take your educated guesses over mine any day<grin>

    given the process outlined, I guessing the time frame is in the year (+) range then for true streaming of live TV.

    btw, got everything set up then determined the location I most want to stream to has too weak a wifi signal<eyeroll> *but* it was a smooth process getting it set up on a ipad mini and it works great when I'm in range.

    If they can't get around the "needs to record it before it streams", at least autodelete anything that was being streamed that is not in the to do list.

    My wife watches football in another room in the house and I hate to find 6+ hours of HD games sitting on my tivo a few days later

    Had the same problem. Ended up buying a wifi N router and it has much better range then my old wifi G one.

    Just stumbled on this thread. Answered some of my questions regarding streaming "live" TV. Sorry if I should know this but will the TiVo Stream send to a PC? I'd like to stream to a desktop in another room. As far as I can tell from the product info though, it may be limited to just iPad/Android devices?

    It is my understanding that the stream can currently only stream to idevices

    Only works with iOS for now. They're working on Android support. I assume there will eventually be a Windows8 version as well which would then allow it to work on a PC.

    Found this thread, so I'll ask here instead of starting new thread. This is such an old thread, so I was wondering has the technology changed?

    Right now, I can stream from the Roamio Plus, but it sets up a recording first. So nothing has changed in that regard, correct?

    What I'm curious about is a Dan23 on post #8 above says the Mini will support true live streaming. It's been over a year since that comment, has it come to fruition? Curious if my Ipad App is not functioning properly, or if it hasn't come true yet. Because right now, if I select the Tivo Mini on the network, nothing works. It says streaming is not supported. So when Dan23 was referring to the "mini," he probably meant the tivo stream box?

    Clearly, it has not come true yet.

    Nope, not yet. But dynamic tuner allocation has only been available for the Minis for a few weeks now. I still think we'll eventually see the Stream able to grab a live tuner like the Mini does, rather then the macro hack they're using now.
