Just got a UPS email, saying the label was created. But it says ground? Scheduled delivery 9/7. Ordered Saturday, was assured it was next day.

Ugh. Sounds like a mistake. It's probably worth calling TiVo to complain. Maybe they'll at least refund the shipping cost.

Mine's already left Texas via UPS Next Day Air Saver.

Now I'm confused, just used the online chat to ask for the shipping refund and was told "Lucas: We will automatically upgrade the shipping to ensure you receive the TiVo Stream by September 5, 2012.".

UPS says it shipped from Fort Worth ground for delivery Friday.

I bet UPS is right.

Shoot - if it is leaving Fort Worth I can just go pick it up...

Mine was shipped next day air saver.

Yeah, but if you already had a Google TV device, it would mean you could have your Stream for use with portable devices AND use it on a remote TV too. Less equipment, less expense (and more integration).

As long as your mobile devices are not Android.
As long as you stay home (no remote network access).
As long as your shows are not copy protected by the cable company (no download).

Same here. My notice came through a few hours after shipping notices were reported here. Must have taken them a while to get all the streams shipped.

Mine is also next day air saver and scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Still no update for TiVo app on iPad though. Without the app the stream box is going to pretty much be useless, so I hope they update it befor it gets here.

So where is the updated app? No update in the iTunes App store as of the post at 7:45. TiVo stream is all but worthless without it.

My shipping status is "Order Processed: Ready for UPS". Been that way since yesterday. Doesn't look like I'll be getting mine today unless UPS tracking is off.

I had a package with UPS earlier this year that showed it was in transit for several weeks. Even though it was delivered in two days from Amazon.

Still no sign of this showing up on Amazon. Figured some reseller would have it listed already. Really curious to see how quickly the price drops. This device really shouldn't cost more than $99.

I believe general availability is set for tomorrow. Mine is out for delivery!

New to the forum..... Cant wait for the Stream. We have two Premier boxes.

One thing that may be a deal breaker for me is the not being able to stream outside the home.

Here are my questions....

1) can we just be able to transfer the shows to the ipad before we leave the house ?

2) Does anyone think a future software upgrade will enable streaming outside the home ?

Thanks!

I wonder if running a VPN tunnel to your home network would enable remote streaming? I'm just curious about what's allowed. Quality would suffer, and you'd be consuming mobile data, so in-home sync over wifi makes a lot more sense.

As long as copy protection was not set you can.

Mine just got delivered a couple of hours ago (or at least I ASSUME it's from TiVo...as my wife sent me a pic of the box). I love doing the unboxing so I won't have her open it, but it's 2 pounds and from "FWN Fullfillment Center" in Ft. Worth, which is as I understand it is where TiVo ships from. BTW, I was a "winner".

Oddly enough, on TiVo.com, it still shows as "Processing Order", and STILL no update to the app (not that I care YET...since I'm still at work). That being said, there is Apple in the way, so there probably isn't much TiVo can do about it. Can't wait to get home and try it out!!

You're in the same situation as me - new to the forum and have two premieres.

As ShayL said, there is apparently sideloading available as long as the show is not copy protected. Personally I think this is way better than streaming away from home over wifi or 3g or whatever because it seems the quality and speed would be so much better.

I'm now looking forward to the first real world reports of people getting their units up and running.

Still no update in itunes for the TiVo app. There are going to be a lot of angry "winners" if that app isn't updated soon.

Assuming TiVo already submitted the update, it's up to Apple to approve it.

Chatting with TiVo support now (Corina). They said that it should be in the App Store no later than tomorrow. In double checking with "upper level management" (after I pushed about how annoyed the "winners" will be), she reported back that, "The update should be out either tonight or early tomorrow."

I know it's just one day, but I was soooo looking forward to this today. Oh well. I'm an Apple fanboy, but I'll put the blame on their shoulders, EXCEPT...why couldn't TiVo have had the update out ahead of time. No harm, right? Sigh

TiVo probably submitted the app weeks ago for Apple's approval, so it's most likely already approved. They probably just set a release date of tomorrow, so unless someone logs into their App Store account and changes that date, it won't be available until 3:00am EST tomorrow.

It's really stupid that the app hasn't been updated yet! They knew they were doing this contest and they knew the Stream was useless without it, they should have submitted the app update weeks ago just in case.

Maybe if enough of us complained to TiVo, they'll push Apple harder. That being said, A) I'm not sure that would matter and B) it's only one day...in the grand scheme of things...

This whole contest has to be one of the stupider promotions Tivo has ever had.

1) You win the opportunity to buy something for full price a day before everyone else.

2) Once you've "won" it, you can't even use it because the app isn't released.

3) They didn't even bother to check if the "winners" were "winners", nor did they bother to see if the Facebook requirements were met.

4) They overnight ship it to make sure it arrives before it can be used.

I agree, it doesn't matter to me. If the contest had been to receive '2-day shipping' on the 4th, I'd be just as happy as I am now. However, it's all very chuckle-worthy at how poorly it was handled.
