While it's a good start, I don't need to AirPlay in my own house. The current update restricts it to the home network of the TiVo. I'm looking for the day that I can easily stream to a TV that is not at my house, such as when I'm on vacation.

The real question for me...

is whether I can stream in my second home, which does have a Roamio that shares the MAK with the others and does show up on the app as an available device-- that would be huge for me

nice if it works good. but streaming to ios devices is hit and miss in my experience. it isnt on the level of a Mini in terms of reliability.

And so not expecting much from this.

and when it does work the trick play experience isnt great.

They need to do Chromecast support, but given TiVo's slowness with Android, I'm not holding my breath that I will see this anytime soon.

Bleh, since I'm jailbroken, I can't stream from the app on my phone anyway, nor download content for playback offline later... so no win for me here

Still nice for them to open up the AirPlay protocol in their app. Previously I thought the only reason they restricted it was to protect Tivo mini sales.

No, it only works inside the home where the Roamio or Stream is located.

I realize that with respect to streaming, but what about shows downloaded in one home--can those be played in another using Apple Play?

Anyone figure out how it works yet?

I've updated the app and reconfigured the downloaded shows, but I'm not seeing any sort of apple play option; thanks

Airplay through Control Center:

Quote:
By turning on AirPlay Mirroring to an Apple TV from Control Center on the user's iOS device, content from the TiVo box can be streamed to the device and on to any Apple TV-equipped television on the local Wi-Fi network, replacing some of the functionality of the company's TiVo Mini box.
EDIT:
And they STILL didn't fix the low resolution on an iPhone 6.

That would be my perfect setup. Stream from my iPhone to Chromecast when I am away from home. Considering the Mini and Roamio use the same basic protocol as the Chromecast, it shouldn't be too difficult to do.

The stream is so limited in terms of quality, I guess I just don't see the point in trying this on a big tv. Even TiVo Online doesn't even come close to Slingbox quality. I am confused as to way they have yet to update the stream.

On an iPad I was getting HD quality. If you are referring to using an iPhone, there is a bug they seem to refuse to fix where even the stream directly to the iPhone is SD.

Just did it for fun to see how it works. After you start streaming the video you need to bring up the IOS control panel... I was kind of expecting a option on the video itself like you have it with the chromecast. Once you have the IOS control you click airplay and it will show you on your screen.

It works very nice, however you need to leave your iPhone/iPad sitting on that screen, otherwise the video will stop. Compare to chromecast I can cast something to the TV and then open another app or even disconnect the Wifi and the TV stream will still continue to work.

I am so excited that Airplay is now an option. I've downloaded 3 shows from my Tivo onto my iPad Air 2 to take to my 2nd home. Looking forward to being able to watch then up there on the big screen, not on the iPad

I don't have an apple tv, but my understanding is that the casting only works when you are connected to the same wireless network as your tivo box. So unfortunately, my guess is your plan won't work.

Don't update the TiVo app to 3.6!

As of right now, the TiVo app version 3.6 is broken on the iPAD. Don't update if you haven't already. The app crashes on start on iOS 8.4 and the iPad Air.

Works fine for me on my iPad Air

I had that happen once on an older version of the app. I deleted it, rebooted the iPad, and then reinstalled from the store and it worked again.

Thanks, I may have to do that as a last resort. REALLY don't want to lose all those shows, though. I deleted many shows off my TiVo, and they ONLY resided on my iPad (per copyright restrictions), so I will lose dozens of hours of shows if I delete and reinstall the app.

It's weird, because it works on my kids' iPad minis, but not on my iPad Air.

Kill the app and do a couple hard resets to see if that helps (Hold power and home button at same time until Apple logo appears).

Killed the app and did 3 hard resets. Same result. I see the new TiVo logo on the screen for about 15-20 seconds, then it crashes, and I'm back to the home screen.

Thanks. I'm in contact with TivoMargret and her staff to try to work out a solution.

Airplay of recorded shows that were downloaded to the iPad works out of network--yea!

I might buy an Apple TV just for that. I don't really need one at home, but when I travel it would be nice to AirPlay directly to the TV.

Streaming works out of the home network, as well, you just have to use the airplay/mirroring option in the control panel, the watch TV function is not supported out of the home network.

Anybody know they also enabled mirroring over HDMI? Because I'd love to bring a cable with me instead of an Apple TV.
