Watching recorded shows on laptop

Hi, is it possible to watch recorded programmes on a laptop via TV Anywhere? What do I need to do?

Many thanks,

Nigel

Re: Watching recorded shows on laptop

sadly not, nor even on a windows 10 tablet.

Fraid windows machines only have a web version of anywhere that does not support this, be nice if they created a windows app one day.

You can only do this on android and ios devices. Not sure what would happen if you tried to use an android emulator.

Re: Watching recorded shows on laptop

Hi Nigel, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you involved in the Community Smiley Happy 

 

As mentioned by stevedh2, you're not able to watch recorded shows via your PC or Laptop. 

 

Customers who have the new V6 box are able to download their shows to watch on their Mobile devices however this isn't available via the TiVo® box yet. 

 

If you're looking to upgrade to V6, have a chat with the team on 150 / 0345 454 1111 and they can give you the costings Smiley Happy

 

Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.

 

Thanks,

Re: Watching recorded shows on laptop

It's not part of the TiVo platform that powers the Virgin TV V6 box - recording streaming is to the mobile app or to another TiVo based box only.

So Virgin Media can't add something that doesn't exist in the technology.

Re: Watching recorded shows on laptop

Can you transfer shows recorded on Tivo to a laptop using a TIVO Desktop Software?

I found this software link on the internet but when I went to download it, I got a warning error message about a certificate  - so is this spam/Virus?
