Does that even work? I recall some dealbreaker you shared, that made it annoying/unreliable.

Oh, it's still annoying/unreliable (the VPN overhead is to blame, I believe) but I was more saying that in jest than anything else.

That is exactly what they are saying... External - they are not comparing local network streaming to Slingbox (RIF)

The reviewers of the Roamio actually tested a beta version of the external streaming service. So we should see it soon on the Roamio line and I would expect - maybe, with the fall release on the Premier line... Maybe...

With the recent updates to the official TiVo app, this thread is kind of moot--the functionality is all there, no VPN needed.

Not entirely. TiVo's app won't stream copy protected content out of home, but will stream it in home. For people with highly restrictive cable companies, the updated app doesn't work to stream out of the home.

Ding ding ding - give that man a prize!

I'm thinking I'd love to go on vacation somewhere - bring my mini along and be able to watch my shows via a VPN - using the vacation home as an extension (via VPN) of my regular home. As long as the bandwidth is there, it should work....and much easier than moving the Roamio itself.

Odd, I didn't even realize those were blacked out--I could have sworn they were still allowing streaming just not downloading. It's ridiculous that they are blocking that.

You can also still use this method to stream over cellular, which the current TiVo app won't do either.

The app does allow you to download over cellular, so it's a lot easier to simply do that than try to set up a VPN.

Of course I'd only try that on an unlimited data plan, or a plan with enough to cover those GBs. These TiVo files are huge.

The app transcodes them, though.

But doesn't the file need to get to the device first in order for the app to transcode it? (Or do you mean the STREAM transcodes it?)

And to what size? I mean, heck, even at 250 MB it would be a significant file to contend with over cellular. And someone with a 2 GB/month plan should know what they're getting into. At least with streaming it's only transferring what I'm actually watching, as I watch it.


Not to mention, if a recording has a CCI byte set, I can't download it (home or away) and I can't stream it (away) so the point, given the context of this conversation, is largely moot for many users (and especially users on Time Warner) anyway.

Right, I meant the Stream transcodes it, so the file sizes are significantly smaller (and vary based on the quality you select).

But yes, you're right ... the file sizes can still be significant if you're dealing with a 3gb monthly plan, and the CCI-byte restrictions really suck (and this is a problem with TiVo's OOH streaming/download as well).

For a second home... Slingbox... anywhere else... how about going on vacation and not watching TV?
