    Does anyone know? It wasn't in the update release notes. Frustrated with the huge delays and lack of info from TiVo.

    I'm wondering the same thing. Not home to play with my TiVo this week...

    Not working for me--

    "DVR Unable to Stream. Your TiVo DVR does not support out-of-home streaming."

    Also can't get premium sideloading to work either, even though release notes say it should work.

    Maybe we need an app update?

    I have the update, and am not able to stream OoH. Maybe it will be magically enabled sometime soon, but I went back an re-read the Bolt marketing material on Tivo.com. I noted this:

    "Watch your TV shows anywhere.

    TiVo BOLT now lets you watch TV and recorded shows right on your mobile and tablet devices. Watch TV in another room or download your recordings and take them with you. Catch up on your recorded shows while you wait for your flight at the airport, or let the kids watch their favorites on that long road trip. The TiVo app gives you all this mobility, and at no extra cost to you."

    That doesn't say anything about streaming outside the house.

    It was previously promised in the marketing materials that is was a feature that would be enabled in an upcoming software update. Maybe they are backing out of that promise. Not happy about it.

    I'm not happy either, as I was told over the phone by a sales associate that OoH streaming would be available in a software update. Sigh. Even more annoying, I also have a TiVo Stream and it *will not* stream programs from the Bolt, it believes the Bolt is another streaming device.

    But did the CSR say which software update would include OOH streaming?

    At one point the stream would work with Bolt programs. But this was a while ago. I think it was back when the Bolt would only stream one program internally. Because I was able to have multiple concurrent streams from the Bolt, but the rest were going through the Stream in my Roamio Pro.

    No, he didn't say which one, he sort of implied it would be soon.

    Ya. I remember speaking to a tech CSR in Feb who thought Bolt OOH would be available in March. Guess it's not a simple switch flip!

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were testing the new IOS and Android TiVo app that does do OOH.

    My bad. Premium sideloading didn't actually work for me on RC4 which is where my confusion might be from.

    It's working with RC12, from what I can see. I just recorded a snippet of Blue Streak, airing on STZENHD, and I was able to download it to my iPhone.

    Premium sideloading works now for me as well after Rc12 downloaded.

    Not directly related to the Bolt firmware update but here's a data point: Using a cheap ($53) VPN router at the Bolt I am able to stream to my Windows 10 laptop via the online.tivo website using the built-in VPN "dialer" in Win10, which pulls an IP address off the network that the Bolt is on 1100 miles away. That means the functionality is there but TiVo has chosen to not allow it to work outside of the local subnet.

    Make of that what you want.

    Your VPN router virtually extended your home network outside your home, so I would have been surprised if streaming to your PC didn't work.

    I don't have a Roamio or a Stream, but I assume when Bolt OOH is ready, I'll see ports opened up in my router, via UPnP.

    That said, I'd be curious if anyone with a Stream or Roamio knows which of their router ports do get opened, to allow OOH streaming?
