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.


- 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.

    without the problem of finding the correct angle for the remote, after finding the remote and the clawlike grip that avoids pressing buttons with the heal of my hand. Pad found my TiVo on scan. Phone didn't but I just added the name and the IP fond by the pad. Works in Unhappy Queendom!

    Fast and lean. Love using the keyboard, what a time saver over the stock remote! But really it's time to add IR support as many devices now have it. Would be great to be able to control tv power, mute and volume seamlessly without leaving the app.
