    Amazing! I just tried my Windows 7 virtual machine running on my fedora box, and it does seem to be able to stream to the virtual machine, so a back door for linux (sort of) support exists :).

    In the To Do list you can edit the properties for individual recordings or edit the OnePass settings.

    Strangely there is no way to edit the OnePass settings from the OnePass Manager section.

    Odd... No trick play controls that I can see when in full screen mode.

    I find it fascinating that if I click on a show in My Shows and click play when I'm away from home it automatically connects me to a third party web site (HBO, ABC, Disney, Fox, etc) and deep links directly to the episode.

    It's like being able to stream away from home, without actually streaming from the TiVo itself.

    I don't either. But the arrow keys seem to jump forward/back by 3 minutes.

    So, video streaming is using a Flash client; the lack of trick-play controls is probably because of Flash (and/or whatever streaming video library TiVo chose). Sad that they chose a soon-to-be-dead tech like Flash instead of HTML5.

    And for the Linux users: ignore the OS warning, it works fine. I tested video streaming with Firefox (with the Adobe Flash plugin) and Chrome, and both worked okay (Chrome seemed smoother).

    i get this error for both onepass mgr and todo list. it's odd, the onepass mgr knows the name of my dvr and % used, and still gives the error. the todo list displays for a fraction of a second, then displays the error.

    my shows tab displays like it should, disabling add-ons didn't fix errors under the manage tab.

    Yeah, I noticed that too - but 3 minutes is a long time! :)

    I also noticed that the TiVo doesn't register a "save point" when you stop watching something on the PC and return to a TiVo or iOS app.

    There isn't support for encrypted HLS via HTML5 in most browsers. The only ones I'm aware of that support it are mobile browsers. For desktop browsers the only option is to use the Flash plugin.

    Well.. Tivo communicates with a home server.. so, I request a show from Tivo.online - tiro uploads the program and then streams it to me from its server farm.. ala Hbo.go, netflix or any other server based system. Perhaps if Tivo doesn't want to do this, it can just open up a port on my router and become a Plex server automatically? Tivo should be able to serve up programs for me to watch on my PC just like it can from one Tivo to another..

    That's probably why they can't stream encrypted content right now. It's basically like OOH streaming using a proxy to deliver the content. Although that makes me wonder why you have to be on a PC connected to the home network for it to work?

    You'd have to have a subscription for those services I suppose. It connects me to Hulu for some shows, but I suspect it's only because it's part of the free Hulu.

    You still can't actually view "MY RECORDINGS" out of network. You need to use the Tivo Streaming app for that.

    I can stream but I get that same not communicating error when looking at OnePass or ToDo. ToDo even worked from my office today then stopped and has not worked since.

    Oh I see now. In FireFox it's just a tiny line of text over the channel number that says "options".

    I do not have a TiVo stream so I was reading today on how to activate and set one up. The problem I may have that you seem to need a mobile device and download the TiVo app in order to set up the stream after you activate it on your TiVo account.
    Since I only own two desktop pcs and I do not own any type of mobile device, I am wondering how I am going to set up the stream once I activate it.

    Another problem I just noticed is that TiVo Online shows that I have two living room TiVos, one that I currently own and the other is the one I returned about three weeks ago under warranty.
    My TiVo account only shows the two TiVos I currently own. I just went through a disappointing menagerie this week as I purchased a 3 year warranty and I did not get a proof of purchase email and also the warranty company did not get notified of the purchase.
    I finally got this straightened out this morning and I do not fell like going in for another round with TiVo support again. I told them to remove the one TiVo from their records three times in the last 3 days as it was returned but it just never gets removed.

    I am going to purchase the stream from Amazon as there seems to be a problem currently with purchasing things directly with TiVo. Hopefully I can get it to work with out their assistance.

    Can Series 3 TiVos be seen through this Web Portal, but just don't have the OnePass Manager? I am wondering if my Premiere is missing some back-end code that tells the servers it has OnePass SW.

    No, it won't even allow you to view content on an S3 TiVo .
