Re: Cant play saved recordings

You are suffering the ‘CPE IP : Unknown’ problem.

I have seen this before but it doesn’t bother me as I don’t watch recordings on mobile devices. When I had it recently, it appeared to correct itself after a few days.

Over to Virgin Media staff to investigate for you and correct. They may take a few days to reach this thread and get involved.

Re: Cant play saved recordings

Thanks for your post on our Community Forum @Mpentony and a very warm welcome you!

 

Can you please advise me if you're handset and the application on your handset is currently running the latest software?

 

Is it also possible to try uninstalling and reinstalling the application, as well as performing a pin hole reset on the hub?

 

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Re: Cant play saved recordings

What needs to be understood in order to resolve this issue for those who suffer it is why the Virgin TV Go app fails to be provided with the local IP address of the TV 360.

When I last suffered this was when I upgraded my iPad to iPadOS 15. Don’t know if that is significant.

Re: Cant play saved recordings

Some further investigation and I’ve established that my iPad software level is not the culprit.

When I have this issue, it is my Norton 360 security software which is stopping the Virgin TV Go app  from being passed the IP address of the TV 360. If I toggle Norton 360’s own VPN on, it doesn’t allow the IP address through. With VPN toggled off, the IP address is provided and the Virgin TV Go app allows recordings to be watched.

This suggests that one area to look at if you suffer this problem is any security software you may have on your mobile device.

Re: Cant play saved recordings

Hi there @Mpentony

 

Thank you for updating. Can I just confirm is this only happening on one device or have you noticed this happening on your other devices too? 

 

Thanks again.

Re: Cant play saved recordings

So, such a strange outcome. My phone and laptop were registered as my 2 devices. I deregister my phone (even though nothing had changed) and reregistered it again and seems to have reconnected.

 

Very odd, but hopefully might help someone else.

 

Thanks everyone for your help 😄.

 

Mary
