Great app two minutes to set up easy peasey four stars instead of five because you can't watch all channels (BBC, plus ones etc) only the ones with a wireless symbol beside it . Was 50 miles away in my girlfriends house thought I try to record a film from the app . Worked a treat . Well please

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well 7 Aug. 2014
By Julie C

It works really well but only selected channels. To watch them all you need to connect your tv to the internet and we've not done that yet. But for the channels you can see its excellent. You can also set your TiVo to record from the app. Once we're fully connected it will be superb and would deserve 5 stars.

You need to connect router to Tivo to get full benefit. Seems odd when Tivo has its own connection.
