TV Anywhere

I am unable to use my iphone as a remote for my Tivo V6 or download any of my recordings. The Tivo box is connected to my home hub via a CAT5 cable and has been allocated an IP address but the message I receive when attempting to connect my phone to use as a remote is "To use your device as a remote control for your Tivo, you will need to connect your Tivo Box to the same home network as the device" My phone is connected to the same network as the Tivo Box. If I go to my shows download option it is greyed out and if I select it, the message I get is "You need to be in your home, on the same network as your Tivo Box to setup streaming or stream/download recordings" But as I said, I am. Can someone offer some advice please?

Re: TV Anywhere

There are two TiVo settings you should check:

1. Have you enabled the allow network remote control setting?

2. Have you enabled the setting to allow TiVo to get an address from the DHCP server?

Sorry, can't advise the path to these settings as I'm not in front of a TiVo at the moment.

Hi I have allowed network-based remote controls and the Tivo Box has been allocated an IP address. I can see it in connected devices on my home hub.
