Android App remote won't work

I've downloaded and installed the Android app on my phone. It is on the same network and finds my Tivo series 3 with no problem. It gives me the Guide, recognizes what channels I receive, and I have successfully scheduled recordings.

But, I can't get the remote to work. I have enabled Network Remote Control and re-booted the system, as is suggested in another help thread, but it didn't help.

One thing to note, which may or may not be related: I've only been able to log in using my tivo.com ID and password. I haven't been given the option of using my Tivo MAK address (which, according to the set-up instructions on tivo.com, should appear)

Has anyone else experienced problems with android app remote functionality, and been able to fix it?

Note Same problem here

In my house, there are two Android phones and one iOS 8 phone with the TiVo remote app installed.

It is very flaky as to whether the remote control functionality in the app can successfully control my TiVo HD unit. Not sure why.

Even after disabling Network Remote Control, rebooting, re-enabling Network Remote Control, it only sometimes works.

FWIW, remote control from iOS app seems to be slightly more reliable (maybe 10-20% of the time) than using the Android app (<5% of the time).

HELP! Would love to get this feature to work.
