Did they ever get that to work consistently? I didn't think so, but maybe I am wrong.
It is not going to help me this time, but I was thinking about a replacement; would Roamio be able to stream outside of LAN?
Not yet - is the answer, so I suppose it depends on how soon you really want the service. The Roamio reviewers looked at a BETA version of stream outside the home, and TiVo has hinted at a late 2013 release.
The beta version didn't wow the reviewers with its quality and the release date could slip... But, it is coming.
Looking at you signature - you don't need a Roamio, you already have an Elite. You just need a TiVo Stream box.
(Personally, I would get the Roamio - it is that good. But I do have a stream laying around if you want to go that route.)
