Unable to stream files to iPad that were uploaded to TiVo

Here is my situation. I have several teaching videos that I have uploaded to my Roamio using pyTiVo and kmttg. My plan was and is to watch them on my TV via my Roamio when I am at home and then pick up where I left off on my iPad when I am away from home or in the non-entertainment areas in my home (like outside sitting on the deck enjoying the nice weather). The videos are in mp4 format and as far as I can tell, they are not copy protected. The videos play well on the Roamio, however, I am unable to stream them to my iPad. The option is greyed out and when I click on it, it states that the program is either copy protected or in an unsupported format. I have recoded it to mpeg2 and uploaded it again with the same results.

So am I missing something, doing something wrong, or it is just not possible.

You have to transfer to TiVo using "pull" method, not "push".
pull = initiate transfer from the TiVo itself.
All push transfers end up copy protected and hence can't be OOH streamed to iOS.

(Note that pull method will generally encode to mpeg2 if the source is not mpeg2 which is desired in this case since Stream can't handle H.264 videos currently. If you are transferring H.264 back to TiVo using pull method pyTivo will encode to mpeg2 unless you are using "ts = on" property in pyTivo).

Thanks. I'll give it a try.
