    Someone else mentioned that you can download over LTE and then start watching the show after it's buffered a few minutes. Not quite as flexible as streaming, but a good alternative for when you don't have access to wifi.

    My JB 4S with My3G will not stream over the phone system. Any tricks?

    I have to use TetherMe with the 4S and hot spot to my iPad.

    Thanks Dan,

    I see a new thread started about it. I wish that I had a JB LTE iPhone 5, to test with. My 4S won't do LTE, but on 3G/4G, it will stream and download over cellular.

    Mike,

    Go into My3G settings, then click on "Tivo" in the list. You will then see a green check mark next to it. Then hit the little blue arrow and hit the "Use Direct Flag" to turn it on.



    Let me know if you get it to work.

    I suspect that means you need to run setup for each IOS device you want to use. At least that is how I read it.

    I can stream from my Roamio, but of course I cannot stream from my Premiere yet. I expect that after the fall update it will open up to both platforms.

    I tried running Setup 4 times and I can still only stream from my Roamio.

    I guess like others have mentioned the fall update might solve this issue as even the instructions above only mention Roamio boxes for now.

    IT WILL NOT STREAM FROM YOUR PREMIERE!

    That is the point I was trying to make, the Premiere itself will need and update that is supposed to be available in a few weeks.

    There is nothing wrong with your setup!

    Yes, that makes more sense. They want to verify a device within your home before letting you use it out of the home to help prevent possible unauthorized use.

    Margaret posted some good info on Twitter



    IN home, the bitrate is not adaptive, it is 2.2 Mbit/sec. OUT of home it can go as low as 290 Kbit/s, and up to 1.2 Mbit/s

    To do cellular streaming, Apple needs us to go as low as 64 Kbit/sec (audio-only). We'll get there next year.

    If you download remotely instead of stream, "Best" is 2.2 Mbit/sec, and 1 hour of video takes about 1.1G.

    "Medium" remote download is 1.2 Mbit/s and about 640M for an hour of video.

    "Basic" on iPad is 800 Kbit/s, and 440M per hour of video; "Basic" on iPhone is 600 Kbit/s and 360M per hour.

    That is good info. Looks like my ISP upload limit of 2 Mbps may not be much of an issue after all. For my Slingbox 350 video quality looks OK down to about 600 Kbps but anything below that is pretty awful.

    For those that have used OOH streaming quite a bit already, what are the control delays like? For bad connections Sling can have several seconds of lag (I've seen it up to 20 seconds for poor connection speeds).

    I spent most of the night at a friends house playing around with the app.

    Controls are just like local streaming, no delay. It seems like it is buffering and all the control is being handled on the iPad - at least that is how it feels.

    Nothing like the delay you get from slingbox.

    I think my only real disappointment is that you can only serve one device at a time. I get it, upload speed is going to be the bottleneck - but it predict conflicts! :)

    After the app update I can stream Out of Home but now I can't In Home. LOL, shouldn't I be having problems with the NEW stuff?

    I was also able to set it up from my brothers network, without having to be in-home to get it to work.

    I tried all combinations of My3G settings with no luck.

    Any other ideas.

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to download over LTE and it's painfully slow, much slower than what I would have expected with LTE. And usually it will just disconnect and stop. I'm downloading an SD program on the Basic setting.
    When it disconnects I get the message "Box Not Responding - Your box is not responding. Press "OK" to retry the connection."
    I'm wondering if it's something at home with the box, router or just the LTE network where I'm at.

    What is your upload speed at home? Who is your internet provider?

    Anybody else tried to stream out of the local network and receive the message "out of home streaming is disabled - contact your cable provider"?

    I tried it at a Starbucks and it failed with above error.
