TiVo, LAN connection and a 172.16.x.x subnet

so by the power of the SEARCH button I think I've answered my first question which was:

why wont my TiVo play nice with my 172.16.x.x subnet? 

...appears to be a 192.168.x.x or nothing! Smiley Frustrated

second up was Will plugging TiVo into my LAN change my life?

again SEARCH seems to say NO, it just allows you to use your tablet or phone as a remote control (you still need the telly attached to the TiVo to watch anything)

and lastly...

can I connect to the IP address displayed on my TiVO? and do anything worth while?

I've always been able to search the guide and book recordings via the TV Anywhere app (no internal connection required), but I was thinking I've been missing out on features and so tried to hook the TiVo up with no success Smiley Indifferent

 

TIA

The LAN connection is useful if you have more then 1 TiVo box to allow MRS (Multi Room Streaming) where you can stream recorded content from one box to another.

Also I have moved this to the TiVo board.

Re: TiVo, LAN connection and a 172.16.x.x subnet

Has Virgin Media provided any sensible reasoning for the bizarre decision to only support the 192.168.0.0/16 addresses ?

It does seem a somewhat questionable decision for Virgin Media to allow their home hub to be configured in a way that is incompatible with their other offerings.  Most of the forum discussions seem to have descended into unnecessary bickering now, with more poorly informed speculation than fact.  It looks to have been an issue for a number of years now, so I don't hold out much hope of a fix being released.

HUB is perfectly compatible with TiVo. I dont know what you are referring to?
