Well, that all sounds good and I can’t see why that wouldn’t work.
When you load the TV Control App does it automatically go into the “Setup Streaming” process?
If not, what happens if you go into ‘Settings’ (cog symbol on top line) and choose ‘Setup Streaming’?
Did you install yourself or a VM engineer? If yourself, maybe there is a ‘registration’ procedure to go through with VM before it will work. I think Mobile Device 0 of 0 doesn’t sound correct, even though with your connections it should work. Suggest you ring VM and get an engineer out.
I’ve had this exact same problem from day one that my V6 box was installed 6 months ago. No amount of rebooting/deleting/turning off and on again; speaking to customer service or this forum makes any difference.
There’s clearly a problem at Virgin’s end. My set up never gets past checking the software version where it tells me that set up has failed and to try again. Have virtually given up any hope of it ever working and looking at it now as a bargaining chip when my contract comes up for renewal in June.
Like you AV8R, I have never been able to successfully setup the ‘streaming service’ between the TV Control App and my new V6 box (which is in a different room to my HUB 3 Router and connected via Eithernet Powerline Adapters).
So although I have all the functionality I had before with the TiVo box and the SuperHub 2, with my new setup I don’t have the new functionality of being able to download and view my recordings on registered remote devices, which is really the only reason I agreed to upgrade to V6/HUB3 (although recording up to 6 shows concurrently is sometimes useful).
Also like you, I am getting a little frustrated that the problem will ever be resolved. I have wasted a number of hours talking to well intentioned call centre support staff, but all they are doing is following a script and trying to fit this problem to a set of circumstances covered by their script.
I have managed to get through to the 2nd line IT support people on a couple of occasions, and they seem to be aware of the problem, but weren’t very convincing that there was a resolution available, other than some vague suggestion that it may be resolved by a new release of the V6 software in a couple of months.
What I don’t understand is why it’s only affecting a number of customers, surely if the V6 needs a software fix to rectify this then all customers should be affected or, say, all Apple devices or all Android but it’s not.
