New Tivo V6 IP Control?

Can the new VM Tivo V6 be controlled using IP?   There are several remote control Apps out there (such as simple control) that enable control of set top boxes using IP.

By definition the set top box has to be connected to the local network to use IP.  But does this imply that the main Tivo streaming service is also through the local network or does it continue to use its dedicated fibre connection?

Also, does the new Tivo V6 support Wifi connections for IP control?

Any help gratefully received.

Bill

Re: New Tivo V6 IP Control?

As far as I know the V6 box still supports the basic TiVo network remote control protocols (as long as you've enabled this option in settings).

Only the TV Anywhere app supports some of the more advanced control functions via the home network, and the series and recording management.

I can confirm ip control works however the new virgin equipment has very limited network configuration so you will have to give it a reserved ip from the router.

I'm currently cotrolling my v6 box from my crestron system over ip
