Tivo box not connected using app remote

Installed the virginmedia app on both ipad and android phone. When I open and log in I can see my recordings but cannot watch anything nor can I use my phone / ipad as remote. I keep getting the TIVO box is not connected.

 

I have tried resetting and checking all cables as suggested. Does anybody have any idea on why it won't connect, I'm baffled as the app shows which shows I have recorded. I really want to use the remote app to control the box.

 

Or does anybody know of an app that will enable remote control of channel switching/recording/volume etc

 

Any help gratefully recieved

 

Cheers

Re: Tivo box not connected using app remote

You need to have the TiVo connected to your superhub in order for the remote function to work.

The recordings and management of recordings is done via the Tivo servers at VM.


200Mb(SH2 SH2AC Hub 3.0), 2 X V6 TV XL, Phone M. 100Mb Business (Hitron Hub).

Re: Tivo box not connected using app remote

Ok its now working.

 

Heres what I did

 

First tested network connections , all was good

Went to network setting and changed the address to a default set by the system ( although it was default last time)

 

Now connects full and working as required . Hope this helps people

Did you reset to default on the TiVo box or the app please? I'm still very confused, sorry.

Re: Tivo box not connected using app remote

you can use any android phone or tablet as a tivo remote by installing a suitable app from Google play store. e.g. Peel Smart TV which is on my samsung tablet

 it will only work if your device has an IR transmitter, but most phones do. the Peel app has a preset for Tivo, I think

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tv.peel.app&hl=en_GB

 there will be an i-phone equivalent in the apple store
