TiVo to laptop

Hi.

My TV has just gone in for repair for a week so I'm using my laptop to watch TV.  

I can access channels via my TiVo and watch live TV but I can't access my recorded programs in 'My Shows'.

I can only see what is there via 'manage my TiVo' and delete but not actually watch them.  

Please advise - simply, I'm not much of a tech boff.

Thank you

Re: TiVo to laptop

The facility to watch your recorded shows is only available if you have a V6 box (not the larger TiVo box).  You also have to use the Virgin TV Control app, which, I don't think is available on laptops, only mobile devices such as phones and tablets.

Thank you, I have worked out how to watch via my phone.

Not ideal but better than letting a weeks worth of past and planned recordings build up.

Re: TiVo to laptop

As I said in my first reply it is only possible with the TV Control app.  There isn't a version for laptops, therefore what you are trying to achieve isn't possible.
