TV ANYWHERE WINDOWS 10 TIVO V6

I just got my new V6 box and am using the TV Anywhere service on Windows 10 using the Edge browser. I noticed that I am unable to stream or download my recordings for some reason. This feature now exists on the Android app and IOS so was disappointed it didn't feature on the TV Anywhere web portal as this is a feature I was planning to use a great deal on my laptop.

Is there a reason this doesn't work and will this be added in the future?

Thanks

Re: TV ANYWHERE WINDOWS 10 TIVO V6

It is currently only available within the apps, and is only advertised as such. On the browser you can watch live TV and On Demand.

For the apps, they talk directly to your V6 via your home network to download recordings. But the browser version is hosted on Virgin Media's computers so your V6 box would have to first upload the recording to VM to then watch via the app. This would make it much more technically complicated.

I have no idea what the plans are for the service, but recordings access will be via the apps only until Virgin Media say otherwise.
