I suspect the issue is that they did not work out all the interactions between using a TiVo mini and a TiVo stream. For example, if you were watching something on the mini the app still considered it a full TiVo and presented the "Watch on iPad" button which should transition it over to an iPad, but if you selected it everything failed. It is conceptually doable, but the app would need to know to talk back to the main TiVo redirect the stream from the mini to the stream and then grab the end point. Unfortunately there were several edge cases like this that would fail in ways that were non-obvious to most users, so it might have been a case of removing a partially working feature in order to solve a bunch of support issues.
It also would not shock me if they do not want to invest in solving those problems at this time as the infrastructure to support it might be different once they get dynamic tuner allocation working.
