The standalone stream has the fan running almost all the time, maybe the reduced the clock a little to reduce heat.

You all are probably right about the heat thing. But I hope not. I'd like the speed to increase back to where it was.. Or even get faster. Maybe it's just a bug that showed up due to the OOH streaming feature. We will see.

Based on my test it's only taking an extra 3 minutes per half hour of video, so that only adds about 12 minutes to a 2 hour movie not double like you suggested in your original post. Not great, but not really a deal breaker either. It's still capable of transferring shows at about 2.5x real time meaning it should only take about 47 minutes to transfer a movie. That's still significantly faster then transferring to a PC, transcoding, and then syncing via iTunes.

I'm also experiencing very slow downloads now. Previously I was able to down load an hour show at best quality in about 20 minutes. Now a show at Medium quality takes over 30 minutes.

I sure hope that they fix this.

Hmmm... that doesn't line up with my testing at all. I was only seeing a marginal difference pre-post update. (i.e. 10 minutes for a 30 minute show at Best, vs 13 minutes)

Although the show I was testing was SD, I wonder if HD makes a difference? I'll have to test that.

Just to confirm, the shows that I've been attempting to download are all HD.

Also, I've tried an iPad Air and iPhone 5s - both very slow, so I don't think its a mobile device issue. I've also reset my Tivo network config and rebooted the Tivo. Tivo is connected via MOCA to a FIOS router. I have also switched wifi routers (turned off FIOS wifi and enabled WIFI on a Linksys router) to see if that made any difference.

So far everything points to the software change on the Tivo

Looking for an update...any solutions?

I transferred a 30 min show out of the house last night. Took about 30 minutes.
Now, in my house, it is taking about 25 minutes to transfer a 30 minute show.
Setting is Medium...about 300MB.

I have all the Roamios wired.
My iPad is an iPad Air. I am using Apple Airport Express as a wireless access point. On my iPhone, it says "Connection: Excellent:

This is frustrating to me. It seems like it should be faster.
Using this calculator...speeds should be much faster

I have heard anything either. My guess is that this slow speed might be here to stay. Maybe the posted to said it was a heat issue is correct. They did update the Tivo iOS app yesterday for "Stability Issues" but I doubt that helped with the speed. I'm HOPING it helped with the constant stopping/pausing of downloading shows outside the home.


.... Guess it's all a work in progress

Yes the update did fix the "every 5 minute pausing" issue for OOH downloads.

BTW, it is seems that the app and the iPad have to be on for downloading to occur. There is no background downloading at all. Other apps, like Downcast, will download for a bit in the background before stopping.

Why can't TiVo do this?

Downloading means I can't do anything else with my iPad for the 30 min to an hour it takes ONE show

There is an Apple imposed limit for background downloading of 10 minutes which isn't very useful. Although in iOS7 there is a way to download for longer if the user allows it. So maybe a future update will include background downloading.

Certainly an option we should be lobbying for.
