    Just to add, it appears there is a paywall for the redirects on live tv. I clicked CNBC and it required a login to my FIOS account. So cord cutters are SOL.

    If you have one Roamio with built in streaming does that mean you can stream all TiVo's outside the house?

    Yes, a Roamio Plus/Pro will support streaming for all wired Premiere and Roamio boxes.

    This new site is only for in-home streaming though (at least for now).

    The iOS/Android apps support out of home streaming.

    I can't check as I only have one, but I believe you can stream from all Premiere and Roamio Tivo's in that case.

    The web site is accessible from anywhere you have Internet access. However you can only use the web site to stream content from your TiVo Premiere/Roamio's hard drive if you are on your home network. What you are doing at work is just streaming content from Hulu, which you could have done before and don't need the TiVo web site for.

    That said I think it is pretty slick what we can do from the web site including being redirect to various streaming services all of which works even if someone doesn't have a "stream".

    Per the Tivo official press release and Zatz's site, Out of-home streaming/downloading is anticipated to be coming soon; when this functionality arrives, out-of-home streaming (a) will support streaming to only one of your devices at a time.

    I can confirm it works over VPN. It stutters a bit, but otherwise it's decent.

    Is there any way to watch it full screen, though? There's a button that looks like it could be it, but it does nothing. It's such a tiny window at the moment.

    I've got it running on 38.0.5, but I had to adjust some NoScript settings, one in particular to allow access to my Tivo IP address.

    One neat thing I noted, if you want to watch a show (using the online guide, and like the app, it does start a recording) that is currently tuned and buffering, you may get more than just the 30 minutes in the buffer. I actually started watching a show at 10:37 and it recorded beginning at 10am!!

    May need to test the limits on this.

    Using Firefox on Windows 8.1 the website seems responsive and I can stream from both a Romaio and a Premier (without a Tivo Stream). Video quality is good and moving the slider is quick to respond.

    A Samsung Galaxy Tab which just received lollipop 5.0 killed the Tivo app, could not stream content using Chrome.

    Do you have a Roamio Plus or Pro? Or a basic? If you have a Plus/Pro then you have a Stream inside your TiVo and the Premiere can use that.

    Great that they implemented this. But the image quality is bad. There is no settings for IQ.
    I hope they plan to improve this.

    Right, Roamio Basic and Pro with built in stream both work. The Premiere Elite also streams. My Tivo stream device for the Premiere is disconnected.

    I just read that ALL Roamio and Priemer models can use online.tivo.com streaming in home on the video how-to page. Basically, I think they just eliminated the need for Tivo Stream for those who will use this new service instead of mobile App for streaming.

    The Stream inside your Roamio Pro can be used by your Premiere. The Stream inside the Roamio Pro is a separate device, just like the standalone one, that's just mounted on the mobo inside your Roamio Pro case. It even gets it's own IP address from your router. So your Premiere is using it and that's why it works.

    I took a look at the HTML code. It appears that they are using the Flash Player plugin for playback, which makes sense since it supports encrypted HLS which is what the Stream outputs. This could explain why it doesn't work on Linux. I don't think encrypted HLS is supported by the Flash Player plugin on Linux.

    Leave it to Tivo to make this more confusing than it needs to be... I have a Roamio basic and 4 premieres in the house... no stream... I can see the programs but I CANNOT watch any of them on my PC.. they all say "This show is unavailable to watch online"... Thx for nothing TIVO!

    So.. I guess you MUST have a stream in some form to take advantage of this... bummer!

    The OnePass Manager function doesn't work for me. "There is a problem communicating with your DVR. Make sure your DVR is connected to your home network, then try again."
    Retried a dozen times.

    Funny since it has no problem browsing My Shows. And the ToDo List management is there.
