Current TiVo hardware cannot encode h.264 codec video, hence the need for the stream add on. Android app support is coming although far too slow.
Tivo has already indicated that stream capability will be built in to next gen hardware. Makes sense as all the Broadcom chips that would likely support the next gen TiVo do h.264 encoding on board.
Slingbox can stream the same reason the stream box can, hardware h.264 encoder. The limiting factor for the stream box is cable labs, not the technology.
