My family room Tivo HD doesn't have a place-shifting device attached but has the recordings I'd like to access remotely. The Stream would be cool because of how it doesn't interfere with what is being watched on the family room TV.
Although my Vulkano is connected to the same TV as the HD, it is not connected to it at all. It is attached to the "free" Comcast SD cable box for the rare times we want OnDemand content (albeit SD) in the family room by switching inputs and remotely accessing content not available online.
My bedroom Premiere has a Slingbox attached to it and I can access everything (including protected stuff) anywhere in the world. No one cares if I take control of what is being watched on that TV so a Stream isn't needed there.
So, to use a Stream, I'd need to swap the Tivos and other devices from one room to another or upgrade the HD and lose all of the protected recordings on it. (A First World problem.)
