TV Anywhere Android

I have an Asus Zenpad, completely new so not rooted or anything else.

Just downloaded the TV Anywhere app as per the instructions. It found our Tivo box which is by the superhub so things shouldn't be a problem.

It allows me to view what's recorded and the TV guide, but when I click to watch things on my tablet it acts as a TV remote only and plays them on my TV (the only thing the sidebar menu says when I click Watch Now is Watch On TV, no choice to watch on anything else eg my tablet.

I've put the ethernet cable in the back of the Tivo box and tried to select allow network remote via Home and Settings menus but no change.

Question: Why do I need another remote control to use my Tivo box (because that's all this is)?

TV Anywhere really is TV Nowhere. Any suggestions? We pay for this service as part of our package - it should work Smiley Sad

I've tried their troubleshooting guide, useless.
