Not sure if this is a logical follow-up to the original question but should TV Anywhere work ok if the TiVo is switched off?
I am using the latest App on an apparently incompatible device - if the Virgin official list is to be believed - a 1st generation Motorola X (XT1052) running Android 4.4.4 (KitKat).
My TiVo is connected to our home network and everything seems to work as it should if the phone is connected via WiFi to our network - including the remote control functionality.
I can also watch the streamable channels via the app ok on the phone if the TiVo is switched ON. This seems not to be the case if the box is switched OFF. Is this behaviour as it should be or is there something I'm missing here?
I tried viewing the Horror channel (chosen at random from the streamable channels ) on Saturday evening and Sunday. All I got on my mobile when I chose "Watch now" was the popup offering "Watch on TV" if the Tivo was off. If I turned it on -fully or to standy - I got the popup offering "watch on TV" and "Watch on mobile".
Today, its working as I expected......I can view on my mobile irrespective of the Tivo being on, off or on standby......which is as expected.
Not sure why it was not working as it should but it is now so all is well!
