I got my new TiVo Plus right before a six day work trip cross country. (California to Florida). I made sure to connect and test the streaming both in network and out of network before I left.
When I got to Florida, I opened the iPad App and connected to my TiVo just fine. But a couple of problems popped up.
1. The streaming itself was remarkably iffy. I'd say it actually was able to stream content 1 out of maybe 4 times, and would eventually stop after a few minutes.
2. When I went to manage My Shows, after I deleted one or two episodes that I didn't need, it would lose connection and have to create a new connection with my Tivo.
The hotel's wireless was robust enough to allow streaming from Netflix and Hulu Plus, but streaming from my Roamio wasn't working, so I don't think it was a bandwidth issue on the hotel side.
My question is, I'm pretty sure it's a bandwidth issue on my home network setup. I'm hardwired to an Apple Airport Express which is hardwired to the Comcast Wireless Cable Router. ( I do that because the Apple is a faster router but Comcast provides the internet service).
Does the needlessly complicated router setup limit the bandwidth I'm getting from my home network to the wireless speed of the slower router, even though I'm connected via ethernet all the way from the TiVo box to the cable outlet (with two routers in between)?
I'm a bit of a novice with networking issues, so if this is an idiotic setup for my home network, be kind.
