Trying to use the iOS Stream app on my iPad using the hdmi adapter to my TV. Obviously no home WiFi right now, so I'm using cell. Getting an error saying external device must be disconnected. So, is my intended use prohibited? Would it make any difference if I used my Mac instead of my iPad? If the problem is instead related to the content I chose - in this case, an on demand program, could I watch dvr recorded shows? Livestream?

I was specifically told - MULTIPLE times - by my installer that my Apple gear would work with the new router from xfinity. I explained that, in the past (ie Before xfinity home was added), I'd used the xfinity router as a pass-through to my Apple gear. I was told this was not possible any longer as the Home devices required the secure connection to the xfinity router.
We are returning home after six months of non-stop problems with our xfinity service while waiting for the Town (and related services like xfinity) rebuilt to the point where folks can live there. One of the big things we missed was stable internet.
So - can I connect my Apple routers or not? I have an Orbi setup in the box waiting for my aging Apple stuff to die. Will I have trouble with that? I was just installed two days ago and have sensor failures already.
Both xfinity and att have gigabit to the house (the single advantage to losing almost the entire town), so I can switch.
What say you?
