While streaming or multi-room viewing, do the FF controls, etc., work just as well as they do when watching the content directly?
Sorry I could probably spend some time researching these questions, but I thought someone could give me a quick primer on this.
I have TiVo's that I record in one room and play in another room.
On TiVo it is transferring.
FF only works perfectly if you have transferred the whole recording, which you
can do if you want to watch it later. If you want to watch it IMMEDIATELY which
you can then it depends on your in-home network speed if FF works.
I have good in-home speed and if I want to FF through all the Commercials, then
I DELAY the start to let the transfer get rolling.
It is not STREAMING.
