iPad/tivo

How do I use my iPad as a remote with my TiVo box? When I try to choose the option to "watch on TV" I get the message that I need to connect to the network. Thanks.

Hello Pickle51,

Thanks for joining the forum, great to have you on board Smiley Very Happy

All you need to do to use your iPad as a remote control is to run an Ethernet cable between your Hub and your TiVo box. If you don't have a cable let me know and I'll get one sent out to you.

Thanks again for posting,

Take care.

Re: iPad/tivo

Thanks for your reply. I'm a bit puzzled because if I have to connect it with a cable then it isn't a remote! My TV, pc and router are in the same room but at opposite ends so why doesn't it connect through my network?

Regards

Andrea

Your TiVo box isn't currently connected to your home network. It needs to be before your iPad can talk to it.

That's why you need to run the Ethernet cable between the TiVo box and your router or Hub.
