Virgin TV 360 Alexa / IR control

Having “upgraded” to 360 i can no longer control my TiVo with Alexa. 

I did this with a workaround using an ir blaster but the 360 software doesn’t seem to support IR control. 
My box is the same the “upgraded” was just software, so that’s the issue. 

im getting tired of reminding the Mrs Alexa no longer can pause the tv! 

So has anyone found a fix for this?

is there any news of an Alexa app?

(Get with space age Virgin. Did you hear we have space tourism now, and you don’t have Alexa voice control support!!??) 

 

Help folks.

True, but it also supports ir control, as harmony remotes can still operate it, it needs to be set as a Ziggo Mediabox next

But you need to have the remote in your had and press a button.

Re: Virgin TV 360 Alexa / IR control

In order to get a blaster to work you need to have a remote to fire IR so it can learn the signals. 

can do you know how I can do this?
