    There's a square box to the far right of the play control bar which is for full screen mode.

    Yes, just click on the square-like icon at the bottom right of the too-small picture. It will go to full screen.

    Do you have any recordings in the old 4:3 aspect ratio? I can get them to play full screen, but they get stretched horizontally to fill the screen. I don't know how to get it to play in 4:3. Anybody know?

    The other issue with full screen is that the little play bar on the bottom never goes away. They should make it like YouTube where it automaticallt disappears after a few seconds.

    Interesting I think it depends on what DVR your are streaming from if the bar goes away or not. For me it goes away if I stream from my Premiere but it does not go away if I stream from my Roamio.

    I'm not at a location where I can test TiVo Online functionality, and so am looking for those with experience for feedback.

    I just setup a one-time recording via TiVo Online, and, after TO had successfully scheduled the recording, it displayed the following message:
    You have scheduled a recording for this show. When it has finished recording, go to the My Shows list on your DVR to watch it.

    Is the "when it has finished recording" part of the message accurate? That is, you won't be able to stream the recording via TiVo Online until the recording has completed?

    I made an experiment. Scheduled a recording, on my Bolt, of a show in progress using TiVo Online on my computer. TO responded with a sub-window whose title was simply "Recording Scheduled."

    "You have scheduled a recording for this show. When it has finished recording, go to the My Shows list on your DVR to watch it" did not appear anywhere.

    The show immediately began recording on the Bolt. And I could immediately stream it back to TO.

    I also used TO to schedule a recording of a show that had not yet started. Right after it started, I was immediately able to begin streaming it back to TO.

    If you saw "You have scheduled a recording for this show. When it has finished recording, go to the My Shows list on your DVR to watch it" instead of "Recording scheduled," were you perhaps away from your home network?

    Yes, most definitely.

    Your experience with access to currently recording content is what I expected. If the message being displayed is sensitive to the user being In or Out of Home, it may just create unnecessary confusion, since the user may simply be setting up a recording from work for viewing when they get home, at night. The error message will make the user think they can't start watching a recording until after it's completed.
