We heard you the 1st time. If/when TiVo eliminates need for Proxy server my guess is OOH streaming should improve.

So when will this happen ? I have 120 /25 Mbps speed at home and can't get a quality picture with the Tivo hardwired !

Wouldn't hold my breath for a direct OOH connection or Android support, and so I got a Slingbox. IMO, it's currently the best option for true OOH streaming.

Agreed. And it's not even close.

They said when they released OOH that there would be a major update in Q1 of 2014 that would enable more bitrates so that they could support OOH over 3G/LTE connections. (apparently Apple has rules about that) If we don't see an option for a direct port connection in that update I'd say we never will.

Without a direct connection,Tivo streaming is a scam as I see it.

There is an indication in the sysinfo screen that they were at least testing that. So I have hope that it will happen.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Is a slingbox better? Probably.

But not being as good as a slingbox in your opinion, for your usage, does not make it a 'scam'. We all agree it could be better than it is. Maybe it will get there, maybe it won't.

First off , I did not start this thread . Secondly , all of the premium channels I subscribe to I cannot play through the TiVo app .You can blame the cable operators for this all you want but Tivo has been promoting the " watch your Tv anywhere " very heavily but it my case I really can't . As the
premium channels are what I wanna see, TiVo
Ooh streaming is pretty much worthless to me .

The ooh streaming I can do , is horrific video and quality . Laughably bad .

So let me just say instead if using the word "scam " ,let me rephrase what I mean .


TiVo ooh streaming is complete , utter rubbish and the alternatives like Slingbox are far superior .

I was so disappointed with TiVo ooh that I bought 2 Slingboxes after fiddling with it . I would have bought a Roamio basic if I had known it was going be this bad.

That's amazing!!

If rotary dialing wasn't bad enough, I grew up in a rural area and found it great when our phone line was upgraded and we didn't have to worry about being on a party line (Google party line for those younger crowds who don't know what that is....).



Yes, now in 2014 I was po' ed because the virtual keyboard on my Android tablet didn't have a stock keyboard with arrow buttons and and to "buy" a third party app to add that function... . "this is crap man"!

Then on top of that I get mad mad when I type on a PC keyboard because it doesn't auto correct like my tablet does as I type......

MSNBC is whiny and smug, but typically factual.

Just used them for 2 weeks and rarely did I get any buffering and I can watch anything that I recorded or that's on tv.
Why don't you just use hbo go etc for the premium content ooh? Why bother with tivo or slingbox for that?

we get it... your Stream experience bites and you got a Slingbox, it's not going to magically get better.

But I'm keeping my vow that every time you play this song I will come in, speak up, and let folks know that I'm perfectly happy with my stream experience and that it streams everything I record in a manner that I find perfectly acceptable.

I'll get to try out OOH streaming in about a week. I'm attending NAB in Vegas for 4 days. I'll report back my honest opinion when I return. I have experience with both in home Stream and SlingBox OOH so I have a good idea of how I expect it to work. We'll see if it lives up to my expectations.

Sorry, but I have no interest in dancing for you. Plenty of other users have said that Stream does what they want.
