You mean MRS?
Yes. Connect to Tivo Service and streaming is now enabled.
It's been enabled for several people already last couple of days including myself. You may want to edit title of thread to say MRS instead of MRV.
Was not aware of that. I only received 20 yesterday. Saw a Tweet from Margret informing that MRS was now available.
See this thread for some initial feedback on MRS:
The other 127 threads about MRS weren't enough?
Yes, but MRS was a long time in waiting. This is the most exciting feature in a long time from TiVo. I love it.
I expected a full blown conflagration this morning. Congratulations on being the only one that felt compelled to be a Jackass.
It's a dirty job, but one of us had to do it.
Can you also stream programs stored on a PC running TivoDesktop? Not transfer but stream.
TiVo desktop it severely out of date. They've released a few minor bug fixes over the years, but there hasn't been a major update that included new features in like 5 years. If you want streaming and/or direct upload of H.264 files then you have to revert to 3rd party tools like StreamBaby or pyTiVo. Neither are very easy to use, but they perform functions not currently available via the official TD software.
So streaming is available IF you have version 20 firmware which 99% of users do not have yet?
Yes. Originally they planned to wait until v20.2 rolled out to everyone. I think because so many asked about it they decided to turn it on so people can use it. Also it works like the normal update where they can see what feedback comes in.
It's supposed to be rolled out to everyone by the end of the month. Assuming they don't encounter any major bugs. So far I have not seen any major bugs in my use on my four boxes.
I've used MRS extensively (multiple shows a day) the last few days and haven't had a single problem yet. Quite impressive and by far the best feature of this release for those with more than 1 Premiere, especially given you can MRS shows that are still recording which can't be done with MRV. It also validated my old MoCA network seems to be robust/reliable and up to the task.
