    I've had similar issues (over a wired Ethernet connection). It is clear that, unfortunately, this is not ready for primetime.

    Yeah mine is wired also (via MOCA.) Hopefully they'll work out the kinks by the time things go official :rolleyes:

    I can also confirm this is working. I watched a whole episode of Dr Who. I have two Tivo Prems on a wired network. There was one point in the middle of the ep right after I had fast forwarded that I got some blocking in the image but it cleared about 15 seconds later.

    Both of my Tivo's are wireless with G adapters. One Tivo is at a far end of the house that gets a poor signal anyway. Streaming just stutters too much for it to be watchable. I will improve signal strength in that part of the house at some point and probably upgrade to N adapters.

    I am assuming that both tivos have to be on the same account correct? Whereas in my house, I have 2 Tivo Premiere's and they are not on the same account...so therefore this option is not going to work....

    I assume it will not, much like transferring needs to be on the same account - no? Hmm

    Woudn't it be more incentive to buy a Premeire to supplement your S3 and HD? I have one of each and bought a Premeire thinking it was something more than an HD (I bought an HD instead of an S3 for the M-Card support primarily. Still love my S3.) Now I learn that the Premeire won't stream FROM either? I could understand not supporting streaming TO the S3 or HD from a Premiere, but not streaming FROM a S3 or HD TO the Premiere kinda chaps my A$$.

    EDIT...The Premire as it stands (using the stable SD menus), to me, is nothing more than an HD with software support.

    The S3/TiVoHD have much slower transfer rates. Probably not enough overhead to be able to do stream properly.

    SO! I don't give a $hi+!! Why couldn't give me the option to stream or record some other scheduled recording then. They left the S3 and the HD behind. Still chaps my A$$!!

    Well I assume the S3 and HD do not have a CPU and/or networking system that can handle a reliable HD stream. As that feature was not part of the spec at that time. Now to play devils advocate the ReplayTV's of that era (and older) could stream content...

    Tivo just said this on their facebook page:
    "TiVo - Hi All, We are always working to improve the TiVo experience. Occasionally, features we are working on can be exposed prior to release. The ability to stream between two Premiere boxes is not officially supported at this time. We appreciate feedback on these features as it helps us continually improve the product. We will provide you an update when we have something more to share."

    It would be nice to add the remote Tivo's Now Playing icon to the main tivo menu. I'm already finding myself streaming a lot, and it's a lot of clicks to get to the now playing list, go all the way to the bottom, and select the other tivo.

    It isn't that many clicks.

    TiVo button to go to My Shows. Skip to tick to jump to bottom of the screen and then select the TiVo(s).

    Of course I still want a universal My Shows list including recordings on my PC and other TiVos.

    Right? TiVo is 1 step closer to the ultimate DVR solution with the introduction (or not) of streaming. This is my original want list from a few years back, updated with some new video services and I include a :up: if the feature has been introduced either officially or unofficially.

    1. :up: :thumbsdown: New Interface - The Interface is severely lacking TiVo, you can do better. I don't just want a stretched SD interface either, give me 1920x1080 or give me death!
    2. :up: Multi-room Streaming - Offer a way to stream episodes from one DVR to the other without having to transfer it first. This eliminates having to manage multiple copies of shows.
    3. :up: Remote delete shows - I should be able to delete shows from one TiVo from any network connected TiVo in the same household.
    4. Unified My Shows- Show all shows on all DVRs in the household with color coded icons showing what shows are on what DVRs. Maybe even use the color coded buttons on the remote to filter the "My Shows" listing to a particular DVR (Could be useful).
    5. Automatic tuner conflict management - If I have too many scheduled recordings and not enough tuners on a single TiVo, find an empty tuner on the same network and use that to record the show. This goes well with #4 since it'll be essentially invisible to the user.
    6. More Online Services - Hulu, Pandora, Amazon Prime Instant, ESPN 3, Vimeo
    3.5 out of 6 ain't bad, and before you ask, yes; The HD interface only got half a point on account of it being half done.

    You know great point... I've been living in a HD world "too" long and forgot about SD. Yeah the replaytv's only did SD (480p at best)!
