Streaming recordings from the V6 to a tablet or phone.

Just had an email saying that it's possible to view 'selected' recordings from the V6 to a tablet or phone via the TV Anywhere app. when connected by WiFi. It doesn't say if the V6 and the other device has to be the same WiFi connection or not.

I suspect it will have to be, but it would be really useful to be able to watch V6 recordings whilst away from home.

I knew that TiVo/V6 boxes could do this when connected by cable, but this is the first I've heard of this.

Is this a new feature or something that has always been possible?

Indeed - you can only stream recordings when you're on your home network. Out of the home you can stream Live TV and On Demand when connected to WiFi.
You can however, download recordings from your V6 box to your tablet to watch when you are away from home.

With the Virgin TV V6 box and the TV Anywhere app, you can download selected recordings in advance to your tablet or phone and watch them offline, wherever you go. In My Shows, recordings that can be downloaded will have the Download button available. If it’s greyed out, it means the recording cannot be downloaded due to rights restrictions.

So presumably you could do it remotely if you had a VPN connection to your home network.

Unfortunately, although this is supposed to be available, I have yet to find a single recording that I could download to my iPad.

Useless feature imho
