        If EF can support TVP, we will be able to take advantage of this cool feature in sql server.

        Feature needed. Please reconsider your priorities.. its pushing people away from EF and over to nHibernate

        It would give a great benefit to we developer users and can be used to help speed up queries. Our old homebuilt model had support for them and it made our system fast. Please add support for them, lest we be relegated to doing some queries in a foreach.

        EF is a great tool until it comes to stored procs using TVPs. How is this not in the pipeline for the next version of EF?

        This feature is URGENTLY NEEDED for our MVC4 EF5 - Provider Portal.
        I am developing a portal system for the medical community which needs to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.
        Please help by supporting table-valued parameters in entity framework for SQL 2012.

        This would be nice and useful if supported in L2E queries. We got some places where we process potentially big lists in multiple steps and in the end do some result select for the collected Guids.

        Guid[] bigIDList = ...; // Usually around 50 but sometimes more than 100,000 IDs
        return ctx.Addresses.Where(x => bigIDList.Contains(x.ID)).ToList();
