    Logging in for me is not an issue. Can I actually watch something though? That's the question. Tivo Online is hit and miss every day. A lot of work left to be done. God forbid you ever need to hit rewind too, that will scramble the tivo online brain to a halt.

    I haven't had any issue with login. I can see everything, manage onepass, set recordings, etc., I just can't get any of my recordings to play. I am on the same network as the Tivo equipment.

    It seemed to work once, a couple of days ago, the only time I've ever been able to play a recording. I get this error:

    Problem Playing Show. We are unable to detect your Tivo streaming device from this location. If you are currently away from home, streaming video may not be available at this time.

    I am not away from home. I can ping the stream and the DVR.

    Is it me or is the play button gone for my recordings? Chome and IE Win10.
    Some recordings are playing from Hulu. I don't have a sub. ?

    Here is what I see, Might be big, capped on 4K monitor

    I tried this out this weekend it seemed to work well with the titles I tried. Then on titles that are copy protected it links you to another streaming option to play back. For instance Cinemax is restricted on FiOS. So to play it back it opened up a Cinemax page for streaming from the channel.

    Here is another. I can watch this from ABC or Hulu. But I don't see the play button to play from the Tivo. I am at my home network. Same on Win 8.1
    Anyone else?
    These are OTA recorded. Not copy protected.

    I just looked at my Roamio BAsic with OTA. I checked several recordings I they all had the play button and I was able to stream them with TiVo Online.

    I would think everyone here has done something similar at one time or another. I know I certainly have.

    At least it was an easy fix.

    Just wondering if anyone has a suggestion for not being able to watch recorded shows with tivo online...
    FYI, I've got a Roamio Pro using a cable card on Time Warner Cable.
    When connected to my home network, using the android app on my phone, I have successfully streamed several of my recorded shows. I've gotten a connection error once, but it reconnected and streamed the show.

    Now, on my desktop connected to the same network I'm only able to stream one of my recorded shows using tivo online. None of the other shows have the watch now button next to them.

    Why can't I stream my other recordings? Any suggestions on how to debug this issue?

    One other question, should I be able to stream my recorded shows outside of my network? I know I originally read that you couldn't, but I thought I saw that they enabled that.

    Thanks for any help.

    online.tivo.com currently will not stream any copy protected shows for in home viewing, and will not stream any shows at all for out of home viewing. You're with TWC who copy protects every channel except local broadcast stations, so you will only be able to stream shows recorded on local broadcast channels.

    So why does it work for the Android app? Is the app "secure" and therefore copy protected streaming is ok? I can't see that the app would be any more secure than other options for a laptop.

    It's a limit imposed by CableLabs. They require that PC based players that play protected content protect against screen scraping. (i.e. capturing the video using screen capture) online.tivo.com uses Flash for playback which does not have a way to do that. In fact the only player that I know of that can is Windows Media Center and it only allows protected content in full screen.

    So the Android/IOS app makes the video more secure? I don't see how.

    Anyway, with this type of restriction, Tivo Online is just a pretty scheduler.
