    My new Edge OTA will not stream my recorded shows to the Tivo app on my Android phone or Ipad. My Bolt works okay.

    I haven't had any success since getting the message from Tivo_Ted that they believed they fixed the issue. I can only use online.tivo.com within the house. Any apps or out of home streaming fails still.

    I still haven't seen any change in status. About ready to give up on TiVo and go back to the Comast X1 system since being able to stream/download to my mobile devices is a big feature I use.

    Hell. I can't stream on or off my home network. All I get is an error. (With Edge AND my Roamio Pro).

    Are there any ports on my router I need to open or forward or something for the Tivo's?

    Tivo2go still does not work for me, but I found a workaround. I took an old pc I had lying around, installed a colossus 2 in it and connected it to a mini (not vox). I can now record to my pc and stream remotely using emby/npvr. I used an old usb-uirt for channel changes. It even works with copy-once channels like hbo.

    I saw today that my Edge had been updated (21.9.2.1.v8-USM-12-D6F), it was "v5". So I went ahead and tried to stream and it's working (on AND off my home network). Even my Roamio Pro is now working, I haven't been able to stream from my Roamio Pro almost since I got it (on or off my home network.)

    Tivo online also works for me, however that is not the issue. The problem is tivo2go (kmttg) That is still not working.

    I think we are in trouble. I just recieved the following email from tivo.

    Thank you for reporting this issue with TiVo Desktop. The feature that allows your videos to be transferred from your DVR to your PC is no longer compatible or supported. We apologize for the inconvenience.



    An alternative method to watching videos from your PC on your TiVo is to use a third party application, Plex. The Plex app enables TiVo users to stream video, music and photos from their computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device.



    TiVo also offers great ways to transfer and watch recorded content from your TiVo on your other devices. You can watch your favorite shows on your PC using TiVo Online and on the go using your smartphone or tablet with the TiVo App for mobile devices. Click on these links to learn more information on our mobile applications and TiVo Online.

    TiVo_Ted can you do anything about this. Thanks

    One of the "features" of TE4 or Hydra is the inability to transfer video files from your PC to the Tivo. The Edge only runs TE4 with no option to move to TE3. It is unlikely at this point that Tivo will reinstate that ability in TE4. This is one of many, reasons many of have elected to stay with TE3.

    And how much longer before this "feature" is added to all models using TE4, or until users want a certain feature or app so have to use TE4.

    Right now the ability to transfer from your PC to the Tivo is unavailable in any Tivo running TE4. It's still allowed for any Tivo running TE3.

    If a user, like me, who is on TE3 absolutely feels they need a feature only available in TE4, they will have to give up the ability to transfer videos from their PC to the Tivo.

    A work around would be to keep a spare Tivo running TE3 and upload the video to it. Then to a Tivo to Tivo transfer to the Tivo running TE4.

    When TIVO forces everybody to upgrade (really a downgrade) to TE4 and the transfer features have not been added then I'm done with TIVO. Have used a TIVO for many years, hate to loose it but it's obvious they don't care about long term customers.

    Agree almost fully. If I'm forces to downgrade (and I've been calling it this all along) to TE4 I won't quit using my existing Tivos because the TE4 UI isn't any worse than the cable company DVR and I've already paid for lifetime on the Tivo. However, There will be no reason for me to buy another Tivo since the UI and other features will no longer be better than the cable company DVR.
