    The site is reborn. Check it out. http://online.tivo.com/start/guide There is now a gear icon to change devices. Too bad they couldn't spend time fixing the guide too.

    If the 'ONLINE' is maintained it appears there's much improvement. If that 'guide' stays current .......... I've never scheduled using anything but material I've confirmed using information I've confirmed but this looks to be promising. I selected my Roamio and there was only the 'FAVORITES' - Looks promising!!

    Still fairly useless as streaming shows doesn't work OOH via web browser still. (Not that it works well for mobile devices OOH either mind you). I guess one upside to "stay at home" orders.

    Hey Folks,

    I've been using the online site daily since working from home to stream content from my Roamio to my desktop. I think I was online when the upgrade was pushed yesterday afternoon, and ever since, there's no option to play local content from the DVR - it only provides options for streaming networks. Anyone else seeing the same and/or is there a setting that I might need to change? It would be a shame if they depricated this feature...

    Good news: the arrow to the left of the program is the play button. Bad news: All I get is a BSC. I logged out and back in but no help.

    Roamio TE3.

    I don't see an arrow or any other way to play a recorded show. Ad blocker is off, pop-ups are allowed. Roamio Pro on TE3.

    Using the guide and setting up a new OnePass was faster. But I guess I won't be able to watch on my PC just yet.

    The Android app updated today too. It plays shows with no problem.

    IIRC it does if you set up OOH via the app first. It just doesn't have a way to setup OOH on the site.

    That's for the iOS/Android apps. The web version for streaming OOH to a computer out of home has never worked (aside from apparently a few scattered individuals). i.e. TiVo has always intentionally disabled OOH streaming for web version. I can test it easily even while at home by simply enabling VPN on my PC.

    I thought if you set it up using one of the mobile apps then the OOH on a laptop worked? I thought they enabled that a couple years back. Although I've never actually tried it myself, so maybe the people who claimed it worked were just wrong.

    Not for me. I can enable OOH streaming within the app on my phone, then test by disabling WiFi on the phone and streaming over cell data and confirm it works. But then trying laptop away from home (or even on my home network with VPN enabled) it doesn't even give you the option to "play"/stream.

    So I can still stream locally from the Android App (with an option to play from My Recordings and start at a pause point) but there is no option in Tivo Online to play a recording. The green arrow that previously allowed you to start a recording next to an episode title has been replaced with a giant Play button with streaming options in a dropdown - there is no option to play locally.

    I'm still hoping I'm overlooking something but this really seems like a conscious oversight or the delayed implementation of a key feature.

    See post 8. While the BSC is running, pause works and the play button also works. Too bad I can't watch programs.

    Just put your cursor on top of that triangle to the LEFT of the title.

    I'm not seeing a triangle next to the left of any episode names and I've tried multiple browswers. I've attached a screenshot of a program that's saved on the Roamio with the giant Play button indicating only that Prime is available...

    I'm seeing "Not currently available" messages underneath the descriptions of all my recorded shows, unless they're also available for streaming. Apparently TiVo Online is now only for streaming.

    I am seeing the same problem as others, I am at home on the same network as my Tivo, but the new interface is only showing options for shows that have streaming options, any recorded shows without streaming just show as "not currently available". Unlike the picture posted above, my site isn't showing a play button the right of the show title. It does show the number of episodes for that show title on shows that have more then one recording. Shows that are alone have nothing in that space. I am on a Roamio, not running hydra. I also have an Premiere on the same account and it behaves the same way. Android app still has the ability to play recordings.

    The new TiVo Online does seem better.

    I manage my elderly mother's TiVo and found the old online version so bad it was useless. The iPad version worked well enough to accomplish what I needed. I just tried the new TiVo Online in my desktop web browser and it worked well.

    I did not need to play anything. But I did edit multiple One Passes and it seemed to work well.
