Stream now - when will Set Top Boxes arrive?

Now that we have Stream - when will we get Set Top Boxes to receive those streams for our 2ndary+ TV's?

Has a wireless set top box utilizing the compressed content from the Stream even been promised? The Preview ain't it.

I assume he's talking about the Mini. There's no need for a set top box to stream from the Stream. It can stream directly from the Premiere.

I'm wrong, the OP did mean to receive content from the Stream. Nope, they'll never do that. In particular, I bet they'll continue to disable HDMI-out in the iPad app to prevent exactly that.

It would be pretty neat if something like an Apple TV could run the Tivo iPad app. Not something I expect to see though.

There is a device called the TiVo Mini, which is a small box that can stream from any TiVo in your house, that will be released in the next few months. However it does NOT require the stream. The Stream is only for iPad streaming. The Mini will be like a diskless TiVo and can stream directly from any other TiVo in your house.

The Nintendo Wii U is being released on November 18th with TiVo integration. This is an interesting alternative to the Mini.

and for what it's worth, Wii U is completely wireless out of the box. No Ethernet without buying a dongle.

Two important clarifications. (Which I believe you know, but should be stated for other readers)
1) I believe the TiVo Mini can stream from any TiVo Premiere in your house. (Older S2/S3/HDs can't stream)
2) On release it will apparently require a 4-tuner TiVo be present during setup (but we're told this restriction will eventually go away with new software)

The Stream also requires a Premiere to work, so that's kind of a given based on the context of the thread.

The 4 tuner requirement is hearsay at the moment. It's likely to be true, but that information was given out at a demo months ago. TiVo could have changed their mind since then. Or at least we can hope they did. I have a 4 tuner box, but I'm not willing to dedicate a tuner to a Mini for a live TV stream I'll never use.

DLNA anyone?

It would be nice to go boxless considering the capabilities of a lot of the SmartTVs now. I'd love to see a TiVo application deployed to SmartTVs with full control or at least DLNA so you could watch recorded shows.

I think we will see this -- TiVo's cable partners are demanding it.
