Maybe the Premiere and/or Roamio can do some sort of streaming thing, but S2s and S3s have to copy the show to the TiVo, although they can start playing it before they finish copying.
As for accessing a network drive, is the Time Capsule "see-able" by a PC running XP or later?
'Cause you can put a shortcut to a network drive in the "My TiVo Recordings" folder used by TiVo Desktop on the PC on which it's installed. I can put shows on my Buffalo Link Station Pro and see them from, and copy them to, my TiVos that way.
