Tivo app for iPhone....... can it be used away from my home network?

The Tivo app for iPhone can be used away from my home network.

However, when you are off of the home network, the app disables it the virtual remote control.

Is there any way possible to use the virtual remote when I am away from home?

One possibility that I thought of...... is there some way that my iPhone could VPN tunnel into my home network and "fool" the Tivo into thinking that my iPhone is actually on my home network so that it will allow me to use the virtual remote control?

FYI, my internet provider is Verizon fios.

If anyone can recommend a solution that will solve this problem then I will spend money to buy equipment or software, if neccesary.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks!!

TC

There's a long thread in the Stream forum on attempting to use the TiVo app through a VPN:

I was able to get some basic features working after jumping through multiple, multiple hoops, but the current consensus is there's no easy way to get this to work.
