Can’t watch recording via tv remote app

Any idea why I can’t watch these recorded shows on the tv remote app on my iPad. I only get a “get this show” option rather than watch now. I’ve been in and checked the Ethernet connection (it’s first gen TiVo) and it’s attached to the home network.

Don’t know why it won’t show the pic but they show under my recordings and my episodes

Re: Can’t watch recording via tv remote app

Your iPad needs to be connected to the same network as the TiVo box.  Is this the case for you?

Certain recordings can be downloaded to the iPad so you can watch them when away from the home network.

Ps. Images won't show until they have been approved by the Moderators or VIP community members.

Yes it’s connected to the same network, I’m sat in the next room! 
I don’t have an option to download or watch - just get this show even though I have two recordings showing.

ok thanks about the pic 👍

You can't stream recordings from a TiVo, it is only available if you have a V6.

Re: Can’t watch recording via tv remote app

As you say a V6 box is needed.  Apologies to @dibspl for missing that essential fact in my previous reply.

Re: Can’t watch recording via tv remote app

Ah ok thanks - we have 2 x v6 and 1 TiVo - it fooled me as it initially said watch on my iPad then errored to say it need to be on the same network then once I connected it, the watch option disappeared 🙄. Thanks for the advice 👍
