    When did we get the ability to watch recordings off our TiVo’s from outside the home? Tried it for the first time from work and it was surprisingly good quality (I don’t have the best internet at home).

    Are you watching on a PC at work? I'm not able to do so (the norm, I believe--unless something has changed), although a few people pipe up every now-and-again to say that they can.

    On a mobile that's the way it is. From computer normally you can't. However today I can too. This would be great if it lasts.

    I am viewing from work on my desktop PC (Linux no less!). I've tried two different days and both days have worked. PGA Tour Live doesn't work on LInux, Xfinity TV Stream also doesn't work on LInux , but for some strange reason I can watch my Tivo on Linux while outside of home.

    Let me try this morning for S&G... Yep, log in, got to Guide, scroll down to Golf Channel, Select what's on (Morning Drive), Select Watch Now, it goes to a screen saying "Starting Recording..." and then I start watching the program.

    I wonder if I got silently added to a beta.

    Funny that you mention the beta possibility--I remember reading TiVo's (former) Ira Bahr mentioning here a few years back (pre-Rovi) that a beta of this feature was going to occur, but then no later official word on this. Although a few people later posted, like you, of having the capability, while others posted that they had it but that it then went away--leading to the beta speculation.

    Just one follow-up: can you also access and play shows you previously had recorded?

    I can as well (after my post this morning I also finished listening/watching an episode of Nova that I started watching last night).

    Wouldn't it be nice if this was an unannounced new feature. :)
