Re: TV control app, iOS, not working since update

the Info icon at the bottom of the app screen on the iPad has an exclamation mark next to it. If I select the icon I get a panel saying "Home Network Required The selected Virgin TV box has not been found on the current network. Make sure you are connected to the same network as your Virgin TV box, then try again." There are three buttons: Re-scan, OK and Need Help? If I press "Re-scan" it just takes me back to the previous screen where I selected the Info icon.Same for the "OK" button. Otherwise there is no error message.

I have tried removing and reinstalling the app on the iPad several times with no effect. What I haven't tried yet is a complete reboot of the V6 box. I put it on stand-by overnight. Waiting for a suitable time as it interrupts viewing for a long time. I will let you know if that makes any difference.

Re: TV control app, iOS, not working since update

Same symptoms as me on iOS/iPadOS 14.0.1

Works ok on android phone on same network

** update: dig out my remote (haven’t used it since I use my harmony hub/app)! Found some batteries and restarted the v6box. Working again on my ipad - strange that my android phone did, but the iPad app didn’t till I reloaded the V6 box.

Sorted - thanks for the input 🙂

I rebooted the V6 box overnight. I have just tried clicking on "Info." and it has worked this time. The problem has now been resolved.

I’ve had this problem also. You need to go into iPad settings and click on the TV Control app and make sure ‘Local Network’ is on.

Re: TV control app, iOS, not working since update

I am having a similar problem. I have an iPhone 11 and the TV control app just will not connect. I have the red screen with virgin media on it and a blue line scrolling across it. Only been recent (as in this past week) 
Any ideas at all please ??
