I am having trouble getting the iPad/Phone app to work with my TiVo Premiere, and I think it may be due to my wireless N bridge. First off, let me detail my recent home setup history:
Prior to yesterday:
Living Room: TiVo HD with TiVo-brand wireless N bridge connecting to D-Link DAP-1522 Wireless N Bridge/Access Point (cannot link to Newegg spec listing, as I do not have enough posts), which is in turn connected by Cat-5 into Verizon FiOS wireless b/g router.
As of yesterday:
Living Room: TiVo Premiere with TiVo-brand wireless N bridge connecting to D-Link DAP-1522 Wireless N Bridge/Access Point, which is in turn connected by Cat-5 into Verizon FiOS wireless b/g router.
Computer Room: TiVo HD with TiVo-brand wireless b/g receiver connecting to Verizon FiOS wireless b/g router.
I was never able to get the iPad/Phone app to detect the TiVo HD and assumed part of the issue was simply that the HD couldn't handle the connection and I needed a Premiere. Partly for this reason, I wanted a TiVo Premiere, as I really like the iPhone/Pad app interface with the system (played with it at a friend's house). For Xmas, I got a TiVo Premiere, and put it in the same spot on the main TV as the old TiVo HD. The TiVo HD got shuffled off to the computer room, which used to have an old TiVo 2 which I haven't used in ages due to the lack of HD support.
I have checked all the standard setting for getting the iPad/Phone apps to work with the Premiere. Network remote is enabled, downloading is enabled in the MyTiVo preferences, the Premiere's OS is updated to the latest version, and the Premiere, router, and bridge have all been rebooted. Despite all this, the Premiere still isn't detected by the iPad/Phone app. However, the TiVo HD is now showing up properly on the network and I can use the iPad app to control it via remote. The only thing that I changed about the HD setup was that it moved from the wireless N bridge connection to the standard wireless b/g connection. That indicates to me that something about my wireless N connection is causing the problem.
The D-Link DAP-1522 is operating in Access Point mode as, as far as I am aware, that is how it has to be setup to receive a signal from the TiVo wireless N bridge. Does anyone have any ideas about what exactly is causing the conflict, and any suggestions about what I can do to fix it?
Many thanks for any help provided.
