TiVo tweeted that streaming for android is coming next month

Finally, TiVo has tweeted some love for Android. I'll wait till it's out before I run to BestBuy and grab me a Stream.

If I had grabbed a Stream when I initally wanted to, it would be almost two years now. I'm glad I didn't puchase one and got a Slingbox 350 instead. Of course now I have the built in Stream in my Roamio Pro, that has been useless to me for the last year.

What about Windows?

Any hope for streaming to Windows laptops or tablets?

You can *hope* for anything you want. Nothing related to Windows has been rumored.

If they did in fact switch to MPEG-DASH then there is some hope, since that's a standard and supported on Windows as well. HLS, which is what they use now, requires a plug-in or licensing a 3rd party API to get working on Windows right now.

A major change such as HLS to MPEG-DASH would require a Stream software update, but when I checked the summer update on my Roamio Pro did not change the Stream software version. So there would need to be an update to Stream software as well as coordinated updates to Android and IOS apps for that to all come together. Pretty unlikely for all that to happen at once I would say...

Since I have an iPad Air I'm actually more interested in elimination of the proxy server to make OOH streaming more useable than anything else at this point, but my guess is the focus has been on getting Android supported at the expense of everything else Stream related. I fear we may be stuck with proxy server perpetually...
