I have been given conflicting information by a number of the Virgin Media sales people, and am hoping this community might be able to give me the correct answer.
I believe I can watch some channels on the TV anywhere app when I am out and about (limited selection). But when I am at home, on my virgin wifi connection, can I stream more channels and, most importantly, can I stream my Tivo recordings?
I am not a current customer of Virgin and hence cannot check any of this. Any definitive answers would be most appreciated.
The number of streaming channels is the same when you're connected to WiFi whether you're at home or out and about (it's currently possible to stream Sky Movies and Sky Sports only over mobile data if they're in your subscription).
It's not possible to stream TiVo recordings via TV Anywhere, but when you're at home and your TiVo box is connected to your home network you can use the TV Anywhere app as a remote control to select and start recordings to view on the TV that's connected to TiVo.
You can also use TV Anywhere to manage your TiVo recordings as long as your device has a data connection.

Other than the fact that you cannot watch the other Tivo's recordings, and you cannot record three channels at once, what is the "disadvantage" of having a V+ box instead of a Tivo box? I dont plan on recording anything on the box in the bedroom, so that "disadvantage" does not bother me. Or does anyone have a link to a comparison? I cannot find one.
