All those with Tivo DVR's!

Pros: Easily transfer recorded shows to iPad/iPhone for travel, or watch streaming in the house.
I really wished this would work, it had promise, but sadly it doesn't as advertised.

UPDATE (2013-08-02):

I've had the TiVo Stream for about 9 months now. It does what I expect it to do but, in the real world, it's rare that I'm sitting around my home and thinking, "I want to stream (whatever).." Also, it's very rare that I actually use it for copy shows off of my TiVo onto my iPhone or iPad because it's just so slow.

I suppose at the end of the day my verdict is: I could unplug it and I don't think I'd miss it.


First, what it doesn't do: It doesn't let you stream outside your network. If you want to stream outside your network then something like a SlingBox is the way to go.

Now, for what it does do: It'll stream recorded shows from your TiVo to your iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch. It'll allow you to download recorded shows from your TiVo to your iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch. You can stream live TV but it really just setups a recording and then starts streaming that recording to your iPad or iPhone.

What works really well is the streaming of recorded shows. You select a show, push the 'Watch on my iPhone' button and off you go. You can watch as long as you stay within range of your wireless network.

For streaming of live TV, it works well, too, but it's going to leave little recordings around on your TiVo. So, if you see 'Local Nightly News' is live in the guide, and start to stream it, it'll setup that recording, stream it to your iDevice and you'll be happy. When you go back into your Now Playing List on your TiVo you're going to see a recording of "Local Nightly News". Now, you could argue that it should clean this up or you could argue that it should hide it or maybe there ought to be an option. As it is, it's just sort of left there.

Let's be clear, here... The biggest issue with this device is not TiVo's fault. It is the fault of over zealous content providers.

I have a Tivo premiere full of about 60-70 shows. I dutifully click through them on my iPad downloading shows for an upcoming trip. On over 50 of the episodes from all over (ABC, NBC, msnbc, FX, Comedy Central, AMC, Palladia) are all unavailable for download due to copyright restrictions. TiVo is really good about following copyright requests, so if a network flags a show as "no copy", there's no way to get it.

After an hour of tapping around, I was able to download exactly one episode of NewsHour from PBS that was not copy protected. Every other episode is locked in the Tivo, so you're screwed. If you watch the TiVo stream tutorial on TiVo's YouTube channel, it clearly shows the iPad downloading How I Met Your Mother, which is locked down on my TiVo.

Returning it tomorrow.

Verified Purchase
The TiVo Stream is a great product that is badly marred by TiVo's restrictions. Eliminate one critical flaw, and I would give this 5 stars.


* Easy to set up
* Can stream over WiFi if you do it right
* Great picture quality on iPhone, iPad


* Set-up time is close to 30 minutes
* Audible fan noise
* Runs warm
* No key-hole slots for mounting
* Cannot stream or mirror to AppleTV

The last "con" is, by far, my biggest complaint.


Setup is easy, but two issues require a lot of patience. First, the startup of the TiVo Stream takes about 10 minutes. This is ridiculous and is as bad as my TiVo Premiere. Second, you need to use the TiVo app to select your DVR and then set up the Stream. This process redirects you to your TiVo account where you need to activate your Stream. Once activated, it takes 15 minutes (!) to "pair" the Stream to your TiVo box. So don't get too excited when your Stream is delivered. It will be a while before it is actually working.


The fan noise is surprisingly audible for such a small device. It's actually louder than my TiVo box. It starts out fairly loud when first plugged in, but then slows down once it has completed startup. As the Stream gets warmer, however, fan speed (and noise) picks up again. If you plan on having your Stream near your TV or in a common living space, consider putting it inside a cabinet.


The Stream runs warm, so make sure it will have plenty of ventilation. I don't have mine inside a media cabinet yet, so I don't know how much warmer it will get once I move it.


There are none.

Easy setup and install. Though you do need a direct ethernet line to the unit. I ended up getting the moca adapters which worked flawlessly.

The good news is when it does work, it's great. Love it, love it!

The bad news is, it doesn't work consistently. Fortunately, unplugging and replugging the unit fixes the problems. I find I do this annoyingly too often however.

The issues I've experienced when streaming tivo shows to my ipad:
* picture looks scrambled (this happened one time the day after purchase)
* slightly jumpy/jittery pictures (I see this often)
* just doesn't work sometimes, error message indicating network related problems

These issues weren't related to the show I was watching, it happened consistently across all of the shows I had taped.

Again all these problems get resolved when I unplug and replug the unit's power.

Pretty disappointing overall, I've been waiting for this product ever since the announcement. I regret making the expensive purchase (of both the stream and moca adapters).
