Tv anywhere app not working

TV anywhere app just says can't connect to Tivo on my Samsung Galaxy s6 and on my hudl2 - it worked on my hudl2 once, a year ago, but not now. Can anyone help please?

Re: Tv anywhere app not working

You are more than likely trying to stream a channel that cannot be streamed. Try channel 104.

Re: Tv anywhere app not working

Thanks, but the app won't get as far as streaming any channels - it won't connect to my tivo box at all. It can't find my tivo on my WiFi network when I try to connect from my hudl2 or my Samsung Galaxy s6 phone.

Re: Tv anywhere app not working

For streaming, your TiVo does not need to be on your network as it accesses the Internet through its onboard 10Mb connection.

I would try a restart of your TiVo.

Thanks again but I've tried restarting tivo box and devices but the app still says tivo not found on this home network.

Re: Tv anywhere app not working

the app needing to "connect" to the tivo is only for using it as a remote control

it does not need to " see" the tivo in order to stream channels or view the guide, or manage series links... so you can ignore the " not found" message

all that a "found" connection lets you do is use the app  as a remote control, as an extra feature. everything else should work, so long as you do rent a tivo on the account (the app will not activate if you don't)  

NB There is no way to stream recorded shows from the tivo, even if you establish the connection ( and to do that you need a wired connection i.e. an ethernet cable from your tivo to your hub)
