    It had been a while since I collected detailed information on Stream downloads. So I did so today at all 3 quality levels and updated the thread:
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=511445

    Looks like download times improved considerably since last time I checked. Highest quality download of a 1 hour 1080i show took only 22 minutes. **
    i.e. ~ 1/3 real time to download.

    ** This is for in home downloads only. OOH downloads seem to be limited by TiVo Proxy server, so even if your ISP has good upload limits it won't matter and OOH downloads will be much slower.

    You choose to ignore the point - you can start downloading at highest quality and start watching almost right away and still able to skip all commercials and have good quality and much better trick play than Sling. But it's obvious you don't like inconvenient truths backed up with actual numbers and facts, so it's pointless posting anything else in this thread that goes against your bias.

    Your picture was of OOH streaming. He's talking about OOH downloading, which will be identical quality to in-home streaming.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say "the people who want to use it on a plane or subway".

    I don't understand why you're so obsessed with this. If your arguments were even remotely articulate or well-reasoned I'd think you were a shill for Sling but that's clearly not the case.

    Here's articulate :

    Slingbox > Stream in Audio quslity
    Slingbox> Stream in Video quality
    Slingbox> Stream in playing premium channels
    Slingbox > Stream in playing on LTE/4g

    I'm articulate enough to know the Slingbox is much better then the Stream !!!


    Did you see the ooh streaming video I posted !!

    Apparently not . You know video don't lie

    I'm thinking Jimmy's working with a different definition of the word 'articulate' than the rest of us.

    Yes, I'm trying my best to 'bate' you by replying to your posts in a calm, rational manner. You've found me out.

    I just downloaded a 30 minute HD program last night via Stream to my Ipad 4 and it took like 8? 9? minutes (I didnt measure it that closely), and that was through my slower access point. I think your download times are way out-of date or you have some serious networking issues.

    I dont get the fighting about what I consider such a minor function. I guess on the rare occasion that I want to watch something out of home, all of the options we have cover my needs like seventeen times over... its like MAD of entertainment options: I have Ipad 4, HTC One, 17" loaded laptop (and a Kindle Paperwhite)... netflix app/site, hulu app/site, xfinity streaming app/site, hbo go app/web site, tv network's apps and web sites, blu-ray, etc The Stream's current level of function for the rare times I actually have used it, it was "good enough".... and if I want something from HBO, I just use the app or web site. <shrug>
