TV anywhere app not communicating with Tivo

My TV anywhere app works for me planning recording and watching TV live on it but I cannot access my recordings either at home or away. I get the error message ' not connected to Tivo box on home' to use this feature , you will need to connect your box to the same home network and then has a choice of either 'ok' or 'connect.' Tried to connect but I never get any joy following the instructions. It's really frustrating! It's never worked and I use the app purely for setting up recordings which defeats the object of having it! 

Some one please advise!

Re: TV anywhere app not communicating with Tivo

You can't access your recordings for two reasons

1 the content providers wont allow it

2 the tivo has a max upload of 1 meg and that no enough to stream

The 2nd could be overcome with a hardware add on the 1st would take a miracle

But they will allow Sky? Why is that?

2 the tivo has a max upload of 1 meg and that no enough to stream

A TV Anywhere stream uses much less than 1MB/s what with the quality being so crappy & all.

Bottom line is that Virgin seems to have little interest in raising the bar, or even keeping up with the competition for TV services.

You can't access your recording on Sky, you can download them to your tablet when you're at home but you can't do it remotely

OP said, "I cannot access my recordings either at home or away"

Why does it look like a 250kbps Flash stream then? (only less reliable)

Re: TV anywhere app not communicating with Tivo

Thanks for your reply. I can't believe you cannot watch your recordings through the app, surely that would be a good reason to have it? As the other poster said you can download with Skygo but there doesn't seem to be an option with Virgin. Oh well I will just have to watch all my recordings on the Tivo box, it would havbeennice to watch on my tablet in bed 😑

You can stream live TV (selected channels) & manage TiVo, that's about it.
