    Has anyone been able to successfully get the TiVo Commander app for Android to access your TiVo box when you are away from your home network?

    I would like to be able to manage my recordings saved on my TiVo box and use my remote function when I am away from home. I already have a DynDNS account and hostname setup, but I cannot seem to get the TiVo Commander app to see my TiVo's using my hostname. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    If peoples' experience with the iPad app is any indicator, I don't think TiVo Commander will work outside of your home network. Even with a VPN connection, your device won't "see" the Bonjour packets required for auto-discovery.
