I happen to be away from home without a TV and wanted to watch tonight's world series, so I purchased Tivo Desktop Plus at the advice of the Tivo support rep. Once purchased, installed, patched, media access key and license key applied I found that it doesn't find any videos and says it can't find a Tivo on the home network. That leads me to believe that Tivo Desktop Plus only works when on the same home network as the Tivo device - true?
Next, I see that there is a Tivo Android app, so I install that. It does list shows I've recorded and let's me manage recordings, etc. However, whenever I try to watch something it says I can't because it's copy protected and I'm not on the same home network as my Tivo. I can't think of any shows recorded on Tivo that aren't copy protected, so I assume that I can't use the Android app to watch shows either - true?
IOW, using only Tivo apps, there is no way to watch copy-protected shows recorded on my Tivo while I am outside of my home network - true?
