no joy- but that's not to say that other makes of smart TV may not work
i went to the anywhere.virgin.. url - got unsupported browser warning- I ignored that and logged in with the tv remote and on screen keyboard ( the TV remote direction keys act like a very slow mouse )-
I could then do all the "manage my tivo " stuff, but when i chose to watch a live channel - expect to see a " register this device" message - simply nothing happened
actually i am simply trying to get tv anywhere - to work anywhere without the stupid limitations.
all I watch is the BT sport football. I am already paying for 200 unwatched trash tv channels on TV-XL just to get BT sport, there's no way I want to pay even more and have even more cable coming through the walls for an extra tivo.
It's no pain, and much better choice & picture quality , to use PC + ace stream / sopcast every Saturday but try to be legit & this is what you get....
I can watch TVA in this room on either of my tablets, or on my PC ( but i cannot register all 3 because of the 2 device limit ) and it still does not work in chrome. I can run the PC into HDMI on the TV and watch like that, but I can't wire or cast a tablet to the same TV as that breaks a different rule... it's not supported in fire tv stick or roku ; trailing a 15 metre HDMi cable up the stairs from the downstairs TIVO would work but is not neat...
I have no interest in "cracking" but probably PC -> TV via HDMi and then record the stream onto USB stick in a different TV socket would work, as the TV has that capability- so much for uber-security - if not that, then the stuff that folks use on PCs to get their gameplay onto youtube , lke Nvidia Shadowplay, probably works, so that no casting rule becomes pointless
I also note in passing that there's a long list of devices that not allowed to stream TVA because of insufficient security or other objections. The Flagship Google PIXEL C £400 android 6 tablet is on that list ! - android 6 has insufficient securtty ???- a bit rich coming from the guys who can't even secure their own email platform
my mistake - but SKY owns NOW TV and the article says "Sky has updated its NOW TV mobile apps to add Google Chromecast support,"- the point being that VMs main competitor now lets a mobile app cast to a bigger screen.
also, last time my son in law was here he had the sky footie playing on our big screen via a cable from his smartphone, which was running ( I think) sky go
this post and others in the same thread seem to confirm that:
"However, just for arguements sake. Sky Go on my Asus Transformer tablet, connected my min HDMI to HDMI cable to my tv, opened up sky go & started watching something & set it to full screen & it sent the video & audio to my TV."
