    I have 20.2 on both my Premieres but don't see an option to stream. All I see is transfer program.

    That is most likely because it would make no sense to have it running when most TPs do not have the V20 yet. I only got it on one of my four TPs so turning MRS on now would give me nothing.

    I am guessing but i think the TP Elite and TPXL came first as only one of my four TP is the XL and that got the V20 software. Also there may be a problem if MRS is on in a home with some TPs not updated, you may get a hang up or something so TiVo may want to make sure that all TPs have V20 of the software before turning on the MRS.

    It is actually a process issue. We enable the feature separately from the software install.

    I've heard that some people may have it turned on next week, but that it could be a few weeks before everyone has it enabled.

    Look at the link above. See how it shows a "play" option? That is new. If you don't have it enabled it will only show transfer as an option.

    But is there any chance it'll ever be enabled for S3s?

    Or is it just not physically possible for them no matter what kind of software you throw at it?

    Margret just tweeted MRS was turned on for those running 20.2. You need to connect to the TiVo service to enable.

    We've turned on Multi-Room Streaming for Premieres running 20.2 as of this morning. (Connect to the TiVo Service now to enable.)

    Mission...
    Confirmed it's now enabled. I was able to net connect for 1 Premiere via slingbox and now the Now Playing XML has streaming permission enabled for all entries:
    Code:
    <StreamingPermission>Yes</StreamingPermission>
    
    (Previously they were all set to No).

    Best feature by far of 20.2 for those with more than 1 Series 4 unit.

    EDIT: My other Premiere must have net connected on its own as I now see "Play" as an option when browsing that Premiere's shows. Can't test it very well via slingbox so shall have to experiment more tonight. Confirmed that streaming of currently recording shows on remote box does work though which makes this superior to MRV solution already.

    Now we just have to wait for @wmcbrine to enable streaming through pyTiVo to the computer! ;)

    My TiVo Premiere XL has 2.02 but my other Premiere and Elite do not have it. I think I will enable it and listen to the sound of one hand clapping :)

    Well even if reverse engineering how to do that gets somewhere (big if) good luck decrypting the resulting stream on PC side.

    Interesting... I would have actually thought that would have been the easy part. I mean we already have the ability to decrypt to file once it has been delivered and we have proven that we can decrypt the file in stream today.

    Goes to show how much I know!

    Anyway - this conversation is probably very close to crossing the TOS rules of this forum so I will leave it alone.

    I don't think the initial effort will be in getting the stream *to* the computer. I think (and hope) that first he will work on streaming videos FROM your computer.

    Where is this found. I just see the normal allow video sharing option.
    Is that it?
