Quick Start
This quick start quide assumes your TiVo(R) is connected to your home network. This means you need a network cable or wireless TiVo adapter connected to your TiVo and configured properly. Please see your TiVo documentation for more information.

1) Connect to Wi-Fi
The device running RCX must be connected to the same network as the TiVo®. Typically this means the device must be connected to your home Wi-Fi network.

2) Enable "Network Remote Control"
Enable the "Network Remote Control" setting on the TiVo. Do this by navigating the TiVo menu to "Settings & Messages\Settings\Remote, Cable Card & Devices\Network Remote Control".

3) Add the TiVo network IP address to RCX
Your TiVo network address must be added to RCX. To find the TiVo network IP address navigate the TiVo menu to "Settings & Messages\Settings\Network & Phone". The TiVo network IP address should be displayed. Tap the "gear" icon in RCX, choose "TiVo DVRs" then tap the "Add TiVo" button and enter the information requested. Alternatively you can choose "TiVo DVRs" and use the "Scan" button to try to automatically identify your TiVo's IP address.

Notes

- The TiVo web site accessed from the RCX menu can be changed in the options. This is particularly useful if you live outside the US.

- TV volume and input cannot be controlled by the TiVo itself and this app can't do it either. The TiVo remote uses infrared which nearly all android devices lack.

Great replacement for Tivo Commander which has been blocked from Virgin Media UK Tivo's

Works with my Thunderbolt and series 2 Tivo, the scan didn't work but very easy to set up manually.

Works great on Samsung Intercept. Realize though it cannot control TV power or volume.

Don't bother! This app is a pile of junk. It doesn't work. It's just a cheap looking remote that has no function. The reviewers below probably work for the developers. This is pure junk. Does not work on Tivo and time wasting developers should be fined and banned. I tried on four separate boxes. None worked, because it was never intended to work. Con artists!

Control TiVo from anywhere in the house Looks and works just like the physical remote. Unobtrusive banner adverts. This is the one to get.
