I don't think so, but can't you kind of do that now with the existing app?

No listing on Amazon yet for preorder, but we will probably have to wait for the official announcement next week before it goes live.

Even if did get the email. Since the pri e with shipping and taxes is higher and it doesn't work with android initially. I might as well wait until BestBuy has it and get it for a lower price. And hopefully by then it will be available on Androids devices.

Besides I would have thought Android might have been first since more people have those devices.

I was talking in one of these threads, maybe this one, and they said the Android app was still missing things that had been fixed or added to the IOS version. I wonder if they don't have a dedicated Android team.

OK, so if I am understanding the details correctly - this is interesting...

The contest only allows you to pre-order. As I understand it, general release will be on September 5th and at that time everyone will be able to order at that point. The 600 will get the first shipment - after the general release.

Any of the winners want to confirm what have been told?

No mail here either! Looks like an initial savings of $150! It's great to be "passed over" - I maybe a little later to the "party" but the ticket in might be something substantially less.

The kick in the arse on the Elite still has me a little irritated.

I didn't get the email, but I just called and ordered one anyway. They don't check anything, so apparently the "sweepstakes" is kinda bogus. Anyone can call and pre-order. They say that it will arrive on 9/5, but it's also shipping via UPS Ground so I would think they will have to ship it out soon. The total was $137.91 with shipping (no tax). I wonder if you wait until 9/4 to call if they make you pay for overnight shipping.

I wish that it was for the IP-STB. I guess that I will go ahead and order it.

But at the same time, it still would have been nice for them to work out some sort of a deal. Don't know how possible that would be, but it would have made it much nicer of a service.
These are the rules for CableCARD, they have nothing to do with the specific providers or channels. Basically the flag marks the show "copy once", which means only one copy of the program can exist at a given time. They can stream the program to another room or device because they are not making a copy, but they can not move it to another device or it violates the CableCARD rules. They might be able to move the show, rather then copy it, but I've never seen a clear answer if that's OK or not. And even if it were TiVo doesn't currently have that ability so they'd have to add it.

Me too, I want to order one.

Instead of making this a stupid sweepstake they should have just made it the first 600 people to call and order. Half the people who "won" probably aren't even going to buy

I'd be surprised if they end up with 600 preorders. If I knew for sure that the Stream would be available at Amazon on 9/5, I would just wait and save the shipping cost.

Did you select option 1 (order a tivo box) or option 2 (other stuff) ?

No. You'll only be able to stream from a Premiere unit. This basically taps into the Multi-Room Streaming capability of Premiere units. MRS doesn't work with S3 units, so neither will this.

I don't think Dan read your post correctly. You can stream any recordings from your Premiere. So if you copied recordings from an S3 to the Premiere, that should work fine.

You're right I read it backwards. I thought he was asking about streaming shows he transferred to the S3 from the Premiere. If you're transferring from the S3 to the Premiere then that will work, but you'll have to wait for the transfer to finish before you can start watching.

Decisions, decisions. I really want one of these, but I have an Amazon gift card worth enough to cover it. If I knew for sure it would be available on Amazon soon I'd just wait, but if not then I'll just pay TiVo the $150 and get it now.

I was not a "sweepstakes winner", but had no issues ordering one. In the eyes of TiVo, we are all winners I guess...

If it supported the #1smartphone platform and #2 tablet platform, I would jump on it for $129. Let the waiting begin...

No email. I thought for sure everyone would be a "winner" since the prize is a chance to pay MSRP+shipping+tax for the product.

#2 of 2. I bet it's #3 by the end of next year.

I've mentioned this before but the main problem with Android is segmentation. It may be the #1 smartphone platform, but there are dozens of different versions and configurations you have to account for when writing an app. It's a PITA!

Plus I think the vast majority of users of this device are going to use tablets for viewing, which right now means a iPads. Phones are just too small to provide an enjoyable video viewing experience for most people. (although some of those new Android "phones" are damn near tablets)

I agree that fragmentation can be an issue, but properly written Android apps (of which many are not) can overcome most of those issues. It will never be perfect, nor will it be as easy as targeting a locked-up, single-vendor, low-choice, walled-garden product like Apple phones/tablets.

Yet Apple has it's own mini-fragmentation going on with its own several models now (each with different processing power, resolution, screen size, GPU capabilities, and maximum OS rev) and the mini ipad coming out soon to further muddy it.

I have to admit, I am far less interested in a using a phone with this stuff than my Xoom (tablet). Even though I have a "superphone" (Evo LTE) watching even a large phone screen that is "only" 4.7" while somewhere else AT HOME is probably not something terribly wonderful. Nexus 7? Probably. 10" Xoom/Infiniti/whatever.... certainly.

I think you and I are probably in the majority, but who knows, I have been surprised by such things in the past.
