I’m currently using the superhub in modem mode, i’d rather not reconfigure it just at the moment.
if I put my Wi-Fi access points on the same subnet as the VM box it will work, but I’m looking to separate my VM box from the rest of my network (I have to run a lot of insecure devices for work so I try and separate everything out).
i’m 100% sure that if I was running a flat network with the superhub, that it would work. I’m just trying to get some technical information, on how the 360 box and IPad authenticate each other as being on the same network so I can ensure those messages are passed through correctly?
Do they absolutely need to be on the same subnet? Is it that basic or is it just a case of making sure the SSDP messages are passed?
I’m a touch confused as the app diagnostics mention MQTT but I can’t figure out what you’d be using MQTT for? Or what is acting as the broker? Is that running locally on iOS?
I’m using the TV app on iOS (same behaviour on iPhone and iPad)
Hi noisyjack, thanks for the message. Would you be able to take this out of Modem mode and put it in router mode to see if the same issue is occurring. If it doesn't present an issue in router mode then the issue would lie with the 3rd party router. Chris
You can choose to use any third party router with VM's broadband service. However, the VM tech teams are specifically trained on the operation of VM's routers which are supplied as part of the service.
They may only be able to offer limited support on third party routers because there are so many, all with different configurations It's the same with all ISP's.
The ipad needs to be on the same subnet as the VM set top box, ie 192.168.0.x

Thanks for coming back to us and thank you for @newapollo for providing you with some information about how we operate and assist in regards to technical issues. I am sorry that we're unable to assist with your third party router. We do understand that you're asking for help in regards to how our App communicates with our TV box.
However, we would need to check if this is communication issue is caused by the WiFi connection between the iPod and the TV box, therefore we would need to ask you to try this out when connected to your Virgin Media Hub on router mode. If this issue is resolved by switching back to router mode on the Virgin Media Hub, then it would be an issue with your third party router.
Are you having this issue on any other device? Please let us know.
