Re: Tv control app not working

Hi, I really am at a loss of why this is not working as the IP address is the same and I have no idea what MQTT is and why it is saying disconnected

Re: Tv control app not working

Instinctively, this feels like the cause of the issue. By means of advice on resolving it, I'm going to have to defer to others. I use my SH in modem mode with my own router, and the next step is probably going to be login to the router and check the allocated IP addresses for each device.

Hopefully someone with knowledge of the Superhub and its UI will be along shortly, I'll ask fellow VIPs as to whether any of those can assist.

Edited to add: In the meantime, and I've no idea if the UI differs but incase it does... which do you have? Please check here

Re: Tv control app not working

Thank you and I really appreciate your replies, it does seem all a bit technical just for an app!  I blame Virgin they must have done something their end, as we haven’t done anything, one min it worked, next it didn’t and the fact that I can view ‘my shows’ so the box is connecting to my iPhone but can’t watch them is bizarre. If this continues I will cancel virgin as their customer service is testing my patience lol 

We have hub 3

Tv control app not working

please can someone help. I can view ‘my shows’ on the app which is connected to my wifi and virgin box but can’t play them and it’s driving me crazy. I’m trying to use the app at home and useless virgin customer service have been no help whatsoever as I’ve been calling to ask what is the issue

Re: Tv control app not working

May I asked what you ticked/did to give permission ? as I’m getting the same problem. I can view my shows but when I click to play them, it keeps coming up ‘out of home streaming is not permitted from this virgin tv box’. I am at home and connected to home Wi-Fi

Re: Tv control app not working

Please don't create additional posts in different threads for the same query... it ultimately makes replies harder because the question is in different places. I've merged them back together.

It would seem all my fellow VIPs use their own router rather than VM's hub, so I've had a dig through some online help files...

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-hub-connection-status#hub3orhub4 is as good as anything for checking "connected devices" - are you able to use this menu to check what IP address has been allocated for each of your V6/360 & mobile/tablet?

They should all have the 192.168.0/1 in common, only the last digit should differ.

Re: Tv control app not working

Perhaps my last post wasn't completely clear.

All devices connected to your network will have an IP address like 192.168.x.y

The y can and will differ, the x must be the same.

If that is the case, then as far as I can tell, the technical requirements to satisfy the "at home" element of streaming recordings, are met. I'll have to suggest waiting around for the staff team to pick this up. Or if anyone else has any bright ideas in the meantime...

Re: Tv control app not working

Looking over your screenshot in post-14, I've noticed it looks suspiciously like the typeface from TV-Go and not TV-Control. (Or maybe it's iOS and I'm comparing with Android)....

So...is your TV box a TiVo/V6, or a 360? The basic principles of operation won't change, but it may alter a few small bits. If you're not sure, check here and also check the video preview window of your box's menu - is there a "tivo" logo next to it?

Let's also not miss the other obvious things - have you restarted both your TV box and hub since this problem started?

Edited to also ask - incase the forum staff pick this up, are you running the latest/current version of the app, and what version/OS numbers?
