Relatively new Tivo user here. About 2 weeks now. Have a Roamio Plus and one Mini.
One of my big reasons for adopting Tivo was the stream capability. Have kids ages 11 and 13 and don't want to put TVs in their bedrooms, but don't mind them streaming a few programs to their iPads.
Previously they were streaming over the net using apps from Disney Channel, ESPN, etc. But my ISP caps data usage (250 GB / mo) so that's not sustainable.
While the Tivo Streaming is functionally working great, data usage really hasn't changed much. I deleted the other streaming apps from their devices so that isn't even an option. I would have expected SOME noticeable decrease in data usage.
So with that background out of the way, my question is would Tivo Stream still be using any significant amount of Internet data even when streaming on our local network?
Yesterday for example, kids were gone half of the day and ISP reported data usage of 15 GB.
Between tablets, smartphones, computers, game consoles and other connected devices in the house, it's frustrating to try and track down this usage. My ISP just gives me a very basic reporting page which lists total usage month-to-date. Trying to track down specific sources of usage is frustrating.
Local setup is Moca with a stand-alone Moca adapter in front of the cable modem, then patched into the wifi router via ethernet.
I'm not even sure how the ISP data reporting works. Part of me wonders if the Moca setup could somehow be erroneously ticking the ISP's data tracking, even though the traffic is all local.
Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
