The Stream was a poor performer before the last iPad software update, since the update the performance has really gone down the drain.
I have found there are several failures at this point, all of which require a cold restart of the TiVo (power cycle, a soft reboot of the Stream portion of the TiVo will not cut it) will usually improve things, for a while at least. I have 2 Roamio Plus units and the problem occurs with both units. Take my word for it, my network is rock solid.
Failures I've seen:
1) Stream stops responding
2) downloads are painfully slow as in hours for a single download
3) downloads fail for no apparent reason
4) unable to connect to any Stream devices
5) Out of home doesn't work at all (it didn't work well before)
unrelated to the Stream hardware is the iPad application crashes randomly.
Until about 2 weeks ago I was a very heavy user of the stream portion of the Roamio (changed jobs, no longer taking the train into work) and the last update made things almost unusable.
