I have a Roamio 4-tuner connected to a digital antenna (ie, not connected to cable tv), a TiVo Stream and an iPad 2. My in-home ethernet router also has a wireless in-home router built-in. I have high-speed internet service provider's cable modem connected to my in-home router. I do NOT have cable or satellite TV - instead, my Roamio records tv shows via OTA digital reception thru a digital antenna that's connected to my Roamio.
Streaming recorded shows from my Roamio to my in-home iPad 2 works great, but.....one day it did not...when my connection to my ISP went dead.
Why does my in-home network need a functioning connection to the internet when I am trying to watch a pre-recorded show (on my Roamio's hard drive) on my iPad in-home?
