Setting upTVAnywhere as Remote control

Hi
I'm new to this and just wanted to ask if anyone knew why I couldn't use the TV anywhere app on my phone as a remote control. My TiVo box is connected to my hub, but I get a error message saying that the TiVo box isn't connected to the home network.
If anyone could help me that would be great.
Thanks 🙂

Re: Setting upTVAnywhere as Remote control

Have you enabled Network Remote Control in your TiVo settings?

I'm not in front of the TV just now but it's something like:

Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Network Remote Control

Thanks again.
If you don't mind me asking, I recorded something on my TiVo box but wanted to watch it on my phone. When I click on watch now it comes up with the same error message as the TV remote.
Do you know how to fix this too?

You can't watch TiVo recordings on your phone.

You can watch some recordings if you have the new V6 box.

Ow right.
Is it the same reason for catch up?
I tried watching an episode of family guy the other night but I couldn't. I can watch some shows such as the walking dead.
Do you know the awnser to this?
