    I feel bad for gamo62. He lives in an area where they use H.264 for almost all channels and has been unable to stream for over 2 years now. I'd be p*ssed to if I were in his shoes.

    Yep. Funny thing, no mention was made when I bought the stand alone or the one that is built in. We have had H.264 even before TiVo supported it.

    Does H.264 content currently stream to the new http://online.tivo.com/ portal?

    I cannot test that because all my H.264 recordings are CCI 0x02

    As expected, it does not. And probably won't until the Stream is updated to handle H.264 content.

    Can H.264 recordings transfer via TivoToGo?

    I was able to transfer an h.264 encoded recording that I had pulled to my Roamio back to my computer.

    It can't because the content is routed through the Stream before being viewed in the browser.

    Note that you CAN test, by transferring a TiVo compatible H.264 recording to your TiVo using pyTivo pull with ts=on setting. A pull with ts=on won't transcode to mpeg2 and won't set CCI flag.

    It's nice to see TiVo release a fix for the H.264 issue in "early" 2015. Those idiots could not find their asses with two hands and a flashlight! Friggin useless.

    You didn't actually expect it to be fixed in early 2015 did you? No different than when they said Android support was coming soon. That took a very long time too. Which is why I would never hold my breath waiting for these things from TiVo.

    Maybe that is why 20.4.8 has been delayed :rolleyes: :D

    How much longer is "a few months?" These idiots have no concept of time. Do you see that Margaret!

    I'm in the same area as gamo62. I had only been using my Stream for streaming local channels to my old iPad. Now the older App for the older iPad stopped working as well so I just unplugged it as it's really useless to me.

    I've been impatiently waiting for an update to the stream as well.

    They can't update the app to work with the old iPad due to Apple restrictions, so unless you plan to get a new iPad you're gonna be SOL anyway.

    Yeah, I realize that. Not ready to spring for a new iPad though. Now that they are supporting stream to AppleTV I would still love to see them update the stream so that I could use it for that.
