    Thank you, Leo! I can't figure out what setting in Firefox is making it not recognize my TiVo. It's this error: "We are unable to detect your TiVo streaming device from this location. If you are currently away from home, streaming video may not be available at this time." Works fine on IE...

    Dan is probably aware of this, but I thought I would mention it for others that aren't. There is a unofficial workaround for using HDMI on your Slingbox 500 with any HDMI source, even with HDCP protection. You can order a relatively inexpensive HDMI splitter that removes HDCP from the HDMI signal, thereby allowing the Slingbox to use your HDMI feed at 1080P, as well as send it on to your TV. I've been using this model for over a year now and have had no issues with it at all. I've been able to successfully use it on my TiVo, a Motorola DVR and a Sony Blu-ray player. I suppose you can debate the legality of these HDMI splitters, however there are multiple brand and models available on Amazon that accomplish this goal, and it doesn't appear that there are any cease and desist orders being sent to manufactures or distributors.

    Leo, I figured out that it's my NoScript add-on in Firefox that's blocking the stream to my laptop. Now I just need to figure out how to tweak its settings to resolve it! Thanks for your offer.

    If anyone has determined which NoScript setting is creating the problem please share, thanks.

    OK, for anyone else having trouble with NoScript blocking after you've allowed scripts, the issue may be a default ABE blocking the website from reading the box as it's guarding the LAN. I resolved it as outlined below. The solution may not be syntax elegant but it works.

    In NoScript options, Advanced, ABE, SYSTEM, replace this rule:

    # Prevent Internet sites from requesting LAN resources.
    Site LOCAL
    Accept from LOCAL

    with this rule:

    # Prevent Internet sites from requesting LAN resources.
    Site LOCAL
    Accept from LOCAL
    Accept from

    Jen :p

    Trying to watch ABC at home and I get a screen saying I don't have enough permissions.

    Trying to watch a recording from A&E and just get a constant spinning wheel.

    FWIW - I suspected that running IE11 in "Enhanced Protected Mode" was giving me this problem. When I restored the advanced settings to their defaults, it worked just fine.

    I found this a little interesting and intriguing...

    When looking at Now Playing, I noticed that it listed a show from HBO, so I selected it. When I did so, it took me to the web version of HBOGo.

    So, maybe, TiVo and HBO are working on some sort of relationship that might just end up bringing HBOGo to the TiVo Roamio itself?

    We can hope, right?
