    Has anyone else noticed that when trying to connect to TiVo app when outside of the home network, you get error messages when trying to log in? Fr example, I am at work and my iPhone is connecting to work wifi, I can't use tivo app. However if I switch wifi off and connect via LTE network, then TiVo app works.

    Annoying to have to toggle back and forth. Wonder if this is a bug or just unique to me?

    Thanks

    Are you sure it's not your work network blocking access to the site the app is trying to get to?

    That would be my guess as well. When I go out for my weekly wing night, I do use the wifi there (pretty much wide open) and have never had any issues with it not working.

    That's probably the case. I know the local library I use wifi at has a lot of ports blocked. Not everything works on Wifi from my library.
