We get it. Delays suck.
Don't like it, don't read it.

And you know what, maybe if people spoke up about the issues, maybe TiVo would push the issue and get it done. But, if you want to be one of the people who throw money at them for incomplete products, have fun with that. I'd rather be one of the vocal ones (since we know some TiVo people poke around in here) to garner up some attention to the issue.

Marketing incomplete products and telling everyone "coming soon" is insulting to their customer base.

Just watched an interview with Tom Rodgers and he was specifically asked about Android. He said that it, and the outside the home streaming, would "light up" in the "Fall". So it looks like we're still a couple months out on those features.

Yeah, sorry, I didn't use the correct terminology there. What I meant was, "it's a no brainer to write a an app that runs on windows 8, but do you make it a metro app or not so it can run on RT." But since they dropped "metro" I am never quite sure what to call things.

Anytime before we see the sales in December is alright with me. That's when I'll want to upgrade.

I think you're suppose to call it "Modern" now.

Windows 7 preferably since most corporations won't be running 8 for a while.

I am anticipating a new version of TiVo desktop that will integrate the streaming functionality. I do not expect a Metro App coming from TiVo, just not alot of moving in that direction for the effort.

That works. Streaming on a web page, even better but I won't be picky.

A Non-Metro PC app would make no sense. It's likely that it will be implemented as a Metro app, and/or possibly a web interface built into the TiVos' or TiVo.com that allows for integrated streaming. Essentially, imagine the iOS iPad app in a browser.

TiVo showed some CloudTV interface at the cable show where the entire UI was running in a browser, including the ability to play recordings. Maybe they'll release that to the public and we'll be able to watch on anything with a browser

That's what I was alluding too. I would still like a dedicated Metro app, but whatever.

That would be awesome! I wish that was their goal with Streaming in the first place!

They seem to really be doubling down on Streaming with this cycle, especially with the name ROAMio

Well I'm happy to see that at least some people agree with me on this.
