Was hoping to get the Stream update for out of home streaming to see if maybe they might have snuck in an update to support MPEG4. I didn't get it on the first go round apparently so I can't try it out. I love my Tivo Stream but hate being restricted to local channels only.

Did anyone else with this problem get the newest Stream update yet?

I think someone in the Roamio forum tested it and said it still did not work with MPEG-4 channels. Since the version number is the same for standalone units I wouldn't expect it to work there either.

Well, thanks for checking. I'll just keep hoping for another update then.

Any updates on H.264 compatibility?

Nothing has changed - H.264 not functional. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that current Stream hardware cannot support it. For example, perhaps H.264 decoding is not possible.

Does anyone have a full list of FIOS channels that have moved to MPEG4? I recently (black friday) invested in a Roamio and 2 Mini's. If it effects a significant amount of FIOS channels I may end up returning my units. Out of Home Streaming (and more importantly, downloading) was a big part of my upgrade justification. I'll be more than a little ticked if I can't stream/download anything but local channels.

I believe is this is the same issue, on Verizon FiOS BioHD will not transfer/stream to an iPAD from a Roamio plus and even worse, it actually crashes the stream portion of the Roamio.

I called TiVo's support on this about a week or so ago and they ended up logging a bug. Oddly enough the non HD version of the Bio channel works fine with the Stream.

That would be very short sighted of them. Especially since the same hardware is in the Roamio units. There may not be much H.264 out there right now, but over the lifespan of a Roamio it's likely to become much more wide spread.

Anyone heard any news on updates on H.264 compatibility yet?

This is so frustrating. I use my iPad all the time while on my treadmill and its infuriating to see all the shows I have recorded that I can't watch and very few that I can (local channels only).

C'mon Tivo. Please address this issue! My stream is virtually useless.

You can use TTG and iTunes to get shows on to your iPad. Nowhere near as easy as using Stream of course, but certainly possible.

Here is the situation. The TiVo app converts content to H.264. Somehow, it doesn't know what to do with content that it already H.264. Ironic, eh?

So then this means that since the same hardware found in the Roamio is also what makes up the stand alone units, that one would think the stand alone units will be around for roughly the same lifecycle length as the Roamio?

Sorry if this post is "dredging up old topics", I'm just desperate to find out as much information as I can with my $129 investment. I wonder if the issue can be addressed in an update to the iOS app. Anyway since according to my Stream the last software update it received was version 19.1.6-01-6 build date Feb 18, 2014, has there been any change or improvement in anything?

h.264 support is in the pipeline. There's no known or hinted timetable, just that it's planned.

You mean in the same way Android support is "in the works" but no one knows when?
