Can't connect to V6 box from TV Anywhere

Sorry  - another stoopid connection issue.

I've got 2 new V6 boxes. One is connected to Hub 3 via Ethernet; the other is connected via WiFi.

  • I can 'see' the 'wifi' box from the 'ethernet' box and play recordings etc but I can't connect to the 'wifi' box from TV Anywhere.
  • I can't connect to the 'ethernet' box from the 'wifi' box, but I can connect to the 'ethernet' box from TV Anywhere!!

So the WiFi 'connect to each other' issues seem really strange....

Can anyone shed any light on this?

thanks

Hi Collette

the problem sorted itself out without any action on my part. After a couple of days both boxes could see each other and the app could see both boxes....strange but all's well etc

Thanks

mark

Re: Can't connect to V6 box from TV Anywhere

I had the problem where I could not connect my recently installed V6 to TV Anywhere on my phone.

The answer was to go to Settings>Devices>Network Remote Control and select Allow network-based remote control.

After this I loaded TV Anywhere on my phone and when asked to setup streaming devices, selected my V6 and BINGO! it worked.

Problem now is I did this so that I could download recordings to my phone or tablet but all recordings have the Download feature greyed out!
