I put that in quotes, because I am not actually sure that it absolutely will not work (disabled) for wireless. But it is definately unsuported wirelessly...

If you do not have an ethernet drop at your TV, definately look into MOCA - you will apreciate it.

It should certainly work with a Wi-Fi media bridge. as long as everything is setup properly. Curently with my Premieres, I can get identical streaming and transfer speeds over a media bridge as when it's connected to the wired portion of my network. So I would expect the stream or the mini to be no different.

Yeah, I have an 802.11g bridge I could try tonight. I assume it'll work. Of course, better bandwidth = better stream.

I was thinking wireless N. At least that what my bridges use. I would think wireless G might be a little slow in handling several streams at once because of the low badwidth.

Yeah, it's definitely low. I think most people would be able to hardwire the Stream since it's small and it may be their Premiere that would need a bridge. Mine is ancient, hence the g speeds.

I'm a little confused, I probably just did not understand some of these descriptions.

Does the stream have its own radio? Or is it using the wifi connected to the home router?

In for one! It's worth it to me just for the side-loading.

Can you queue downloads, or must you manually invoke them, one at a time?

Do you need a separate Tivo Stream for each Tivo Premiere that you want to stream from ?

Yeah, you can queue them. Just be prepared to leave your iPad plugged in and lit up for awhile.

The Stream is LAN Connected - no wifi and it doesn't need to be. Hook it up directy to your router.
IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE NEAR EITHER A TIVO OR A TV!

I think the question is "will it work with a wifi connected TiVo?" It should if you have enough bandwidth - but that is a big "IF" for a lot of people.

TiVo says - only hardwired TiVo's are supported.

As a Non-Winner, I tried to call the number and order one, but I was refused because I did not receive the email and do not have a "code" from the email.

Anyone not using their "winning" Golden Ticket for an MSRP+Tax+Shipping Stream?

No the stream does not have a radio and yes it uses what ever you are currently using to broadcast wifi. The stream has to be hard wired through to the device that you are currently using to broadcast wifi.

Why are they leaving money on the table like this? I called them, offered to give them money, and they told me that if I didn't "like" their FB post and get an email back, they don't want to sell me one of their boxes? How completely odd, and lame?!

I assume they have a limited number of units from their first shipment and those were the ones they can deliver by 9/5. I also assume another shipment is enroute since they're opening the doors wide on 9/6.

Seems like they have blown through their 600 units! When I called, they asked for my email address and very quickly made some comment about it being shiped out after the 5th - the date of general availability.

The "winners" are supposed to receive the unit ON September 5th.

A few days one way or the other does not matter to me - But hey, I am interested to know know if anyone who is not actually a sweepstakes winner, receives their TiVo Stream on September 5th.

I had no such problem. I called the SALES number specifically and when TiVo SALES answered the phone I said "I'd like to pre-order the TiVo Stream". She told me they had one in the break room and it was very cool. The total transaction took perhaps 5 minutes. She also said that they would bump my order up to overnight shipping at no extra charge so that I got it within a day of when it was in the stores.

Nice. What number? Perhaps I'll try again.

I am pretty sure I know the answer - but It is worth the question...

If I have a home movie or other video on my media library (something other then a .tivo file), can I move the video to my Premier and then sideload it to the tablet?

Any restrictions on non .tivo files I guess is the real question.

The $129 is also the MSRP. This is a hardware only product more like a slide remote or wifi bridge than another TiVo so one might expect the price to be less at other vendors once it has been out for a bit.

Good question, and I don't know the answer. I know things like the podcast downloads and Amazon videos won't come over, but I would assume video we moved over would be seen as any other "normal" recording. I'll check in with a beta tester I know and reply if/when I learn anything further.

Thanks. Great I can stick it in my basement out of the way, but annoying that I'll finally have to move my router to get a decent wifi signal to my detached garage!

This is a great question I have tons of kids movies I transfer to my Tivo from PC/Media server. I also have other format movies that I like to transfer to my Tivo. I'm crossing my fingers that this is going to work.

That would kind of suck due to bandwidth issues. You'll be streaming wirelessly to your iPad, then streaming wireless out from your iPad to your Apple TV. It would be better if Tivo just had an Apple TV app.

Unless this thing downloads to your iPad/iPhone before being able to watch the show. I haven't read all the details on this device so it may work that way and thus you wouldn't be trying to push/pull data simultaneously over one wifi connection.

People do with with Air Video, streaming from Air Video Server on their computers, AirPlaying to their TV, all the time.

That falls into the same category as the Roku app we discussed earlier. (i.e. probably not going to happen) TiVo wants you to buy a Mini, or additional TiVo, for streaming to other TVs.
