I’m using the Virgin TV Go app on an IPad Pro. When trying to watch a recording, I receive the following message
‘Unable to access the recording.
This recording is only available on your home network. If you are at home, check that you are connected to the same network or SSID as your Virgin TV box, and that the Virgin TV Go app has permission to discover devices on your local network. To check this, go to iOS settings > Local network > ON’
I have 3 devices. The iPhone can access recordings, but the 2 iPads cannot. All 3 devices are using the same home network and ‘local network’ toggle is switched ON in iOS settings.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community.
I'm very sorry to hear about any issue you're having with your Tv Go service.
Please can you confirm if you ae using a VPN or any anti virus software on your iPad?
Please can you also confirm what OS is all of your devices?
I’ve just tried 4 or 5 different recordings across both devices and received the same error message.
Just doubled checked and yes both iPads are using the same network as the TV/Virgin Box.
Thank you for confirming this @MissyE1.
Have you been able to use it on the iPads before? Or has it never worked?
Are you able to continue to use the devices that work to watch your recordings?

I know the following relates to the Sky Sports app and not TVGO but it might apply.
I'm not sure if this relevant to using Mcaffee but the following was posted yesterday regarding Norton AV.
"Something must have changed on Norton
Previously I always just turned my VPN off to view the Sky sports app
Today I have also turned off Web Protection which I have never done before and can now watch Live TV on the Sky Sports app.
So the issue might be connected to your Mcaffee AV or if you have web safe settings turned on.
