    I enabled it too and found that if I try to go through setup it tells me to create some ports on my router, which I do but it then gives me a message that setup failed.

    There is a newer v3.5.2 iOS Tivo app. Does it still have this Debug > Sensitive Settings > Enable Cell Streaming setting?

    No. If you want to keep the debug menu, don't let it update.

    Ugh. I updated to the latest version of the iOS app when it came out and lost this capability. I don't have a major need to use this, but on rare occasions it can be nice. Can't believe they still don't have this feature.

    BTW, even in-home Wi-Fi streaming lacks quality compared to what the Plex app can deliver.

    So does the built-in Stream hardware in the Roamio not support multiple bitrates, and is the current quality level the best that it can deliver?

    If I stream out of home it seems like there are four or five levels of streaming based on the number of dots highlighted.

    It works great with the proper bandwidth. But with low bandwidth like 1mbps, it doesn't do well. So I use my Slingbox 350 for streaming out of home in those situations.

    Android streaming continues to suck for me OOH, sure wish Tivo would grow a pair and add downloads.

    So now almost two years since the Roamio / iOS app upgrade debuted, and over a year since it was promised, we still don't have iOS app streaming over cellular. The question now: Will it ever happen?

    Well I would have to say that my android was MUCH easier to setup then my iOS (iPad)

    I cannot get my iPad to allow me to setup OOH streaming at all... I have tried restarting the iPad, logging out and back in etc. Any advice anyone???

    What does it do?

    Streaming via cellular OOH does not work on iOS. It's a limit imposed by Apple because TiVo does not have a wide enough band of bitrates. (they have strict requirements for apps that allow cellular streaming)

    It won't even allow me the option to setup the OOH streaming on the iPad. If if go through the setup it only does the in-house one again and again.

    Yeah it has to be connected to the same network, and on the same subnet, as the TiVo for it to work.

    I just tried it on my iPad Air and it worked just fine so it's not a priblem with the app itself.

    It is connected via wifi which is also my cable providers modem/router.

    What do I need to verify and how?

    Look at the IP address of both your iPad and the Stream. The first 3 bits need to be the same....

    xxx.xxx.xxx.yyy

    The Xs all need to be the same numbers. The last 3 digits should be different.

    Yes they are all the same... 192.168.0.xx

    What else could it be?

    Also it just updated to the new version of the app on the iPad.
