    Hi TiVo Stream owners!

    We have begun releasing the out-of-home feature to TiVo Stream boxes. An initial group of boxes were authorized for the update today.

    If you are anxious to see if your TiVo Stream was one of them, then WHILE CONNECTED TO YOUR HOME NETWORK you'll need to:

    - start the TiVo iOS app on your iPhone or iPad
    - go into Settings > Streaming System Information
    - select "Make Service Call" (it will turn gray)
    - wait until the "Make Service Call" is black again
    - select "Restart streaming device" and wait awhile for the restart to complete
    - go to Settings > Streaming Setup

    *IF* your box was in the first group to be authorized for the update, then the "Set Up Streaming?" screen will have a checkbox for "Set up out-of-home streaming". Check that box, and complete setup.

    NOTE: You will only be able to OOH stream from retail TiVo Premiere or Roamio DVRs running 20.3.7.1a software or later.

    If your TiVo Stream was not in this first batch, it should be updated within a couple of weeks.

    --Margret

    I just saw this and opened the app on my iPad and it automatically came up and asked if I wanted to enable out of home streaming, so it looks like my Stream was enabled.

    But, I do not see this:
    - Settings > Streaming System Information

    Only see this:
    - Settings > System Information
    and no option to "Make Service Call"

    My SW version is: 19.1.2a-01-6

    Can anyone confirm if this is the needed version?

    I do have 20.3.7.1a on the Premier.

    That looks like an older version. On Roamio it is:
    Software Version: 19.1.3b-USB-6

    You don't have to go through iOS app to get to the web page either, just use:

    Awesome for apple people, the worldwide market majority share of tablets and phones belongs to android, not apple though. All of my devices are at least jelly bean 4.2.2. I would love to want a tivo stream, yet it's currently a waste of money.

    When can I expect to really want a stream?

    Android share blah blah blah. I have iOS devices, but that didn't help me get picked for a Stream update. Boo! I'm gettin a cable DVR and Windows phone!

    (This rant was in no way supported by Microsoft or any Cable company or Cable company supplier.):D

    Pointing to WW market share is immaterial, that has been flogged to death in the other thread. Android numbers are larger, but not all android devices are (or will be) capable of streaming.

    You need to look at share in countries where Tivo is sold and look at the capabilities of the devices. This tells a different story.

    When they say "within weeks" I am sure she means that the staged roll-out will take a couple of weeks to complete.

    You could get it tomorrow, or you could get it by the end of the Month.

    I am looking into Sling box but is much more expensive and you need to purchase an app for each device.

    [RANT ON]Why does every stream thread turn into an android discussion? There are threads for that discussion elsewhere.[/RANT ON]

    Back on Track,

    Will there be a priority list for this update at some point?

    I don't seem to be in the first group, but thanks for letting us know how to check, Margret. I'll keep looking for it over the next few weeks.

    I think she said stream does not get a priority list.

    I wonder if it was based on purchase date? I bought my stream as part of that initial "contest" offer. I didn't actually "win" the contest but someone on here did and posted a copy of the email so I called in an lied and it worked. So mine was one of the first 600 ever made.
