Will single TiVo Stream work with multiple basic Roamios?

If you have more than one basic Roamio, do you only need a single TiVo Stream for all of them, or do you need one Stream per Roamio?

There apparently needs to be a sticky about how the Stream works (and this should probably be in the Stream section of the forum)...there have been multiple version of this asked over the past few days...

One stream (either external or built into the Roamio Plus/Pro) is needed to stream from ANY TiVo on the same network (i would assume they would also have to be on the same account, ie: same MAK)

So would that limit you to one stream at a time? If you had two, could you do two streams?

No, a single Stream can do up to 4 streams at a time.

Oh ok. So it could do two and two or one and three with two TiVos?

Yes. The only limitation is that as single TiVo only supports 3 outgoing streams, which includes streams between TiVos and to Minis. So with one TiVo and one Stream you'll never get more then 3 streams. But with two you could max it out.

TiVo Stream vs Roamio Stream

I was wondering if I need both TiVo Stream when Roamio Pro has Stream also. I doubt I will need to stream more than 4 shows at the same time.

Thanks

No, the Stream inside the Roamio Plus/Pro can be used by any Roamio or Premiere on your network, so there is no need to have a standalone Stream if you have a Roamio Plus or Pro.
