Roamio basic + Stream

Weird - it says on the website that Roamio basic on wireless isn't supported for use w/ Stream, but I'm able to Stream/copy to my iPad just fine w/o connecting to Ethernet (I'm on wifi):

"This method does not support streaming content between two or more TiVo devices such as TiVo DVRs, TiVo Mini or TiVo Stream (with 4-tuner TiVo Roamio)."

Not that I'm complaining, just interesting that the setup is not supported (maybe functionally it works but they won't support any bandwidth/performance issues etc.?).

Just happening to work in your house is different than being supported. They just have not put any restrictions in place.

Yeah that's what I figured. I'm just pleasantly surprised it's functional.

You said it right there, the bandwidth demands of streaming over WiFi are high enough that Tivo's opted to simply make it unsupported, rather than attempt to troubleshoot the endless variability in wireless networking.
