    Hi all--have my Bolt+3 mini setup working nicely. Bolt is connected via ethernet, the Minis over Moca.

    Xfinity X1 is my provider. I have confirmed that the Bolt + Mini setup has serious trouble pushing two simultaneous VOD streams (one to the bolt, one to another mini). This was never a problem with Xfinity X1 any room DVR that this system is replacing.

    The behavior is that both VOD stream start, but freeze quickly on both devices. Stopping one stream makes the other work fine.

    Is this functionality supported? Anyone have similar issues? Thank you!

    I believe I read that the Comcast VOD app on TiVo is limited to only being able to play one stream at a time. I'm not sure if that's one stream per full TiVo box (HD, premiere, Roamio, Bolt, not minis), or one per account/household though.

    It is one stream per full TiVo box, can't watch VOD on two minis at the same time connected to the same TiVo, can't watch VOD on any mini connected to a TiVo that is already watching a VOD program. With two TiVos you could watch two VOD programs in your home, this only applies to Comcast as that the only service I have.
