Streaming Flash Content on Roamio?

Hi all,

I recently signed up for the VideoPass for MotoGP. They host all of their video content as Flash streams. I'd like to know how to get/play this content on my Roamio (Pro, upgraded to 3TB by Weaknees).

I tried downloading the video so I could try to use PyTiVo to transfer it, but the download fails. I then tried using my PS4 browser, but this doesn't seem to support Flash at all.

Ideas?

Chris

Likely not possible, I'm afraid. These kinds of subscription video services (like NFL Rewind in the US) restrict their content to their own website and device apps. TiVos don't have an internet browser, and they only stream content through supported apps (native ones like Netflix, Hulu, etc., or those available in the Opera Store). I don't think MotoGP provides such an app.

Maybe I should just add a Mac Mini to my AV mix...

What about mirroring an iPad to AppleTV?

iPads don't support flash.

If MotoGP has an iPad app, maybe that would work. If it's anything like NFL Rewind, though, they go out of their way to make it as difficult as possible to watch their content on an actual TV screen. NFL Rewind, as an example, does have an iPad app, but it plays a lower quality version of the games. So I'm sure it'd look like crap if I tried to mirror it to a big screen. (I don't have an Apple TV, so I've never tried.)

I think your best bet is to explore the MotoGP web site, or talk to their support people, to see what devices they actually support, and if/how they allow you to display their videos on TV.
