Fetch App connection to Fetch Mighty Box

I travel frequently so need to be able to program my recording of tv programs using my Fetch Android app. It will frequently lose the free to air channels in the tv guide and at the same time tells me that it cannot connect to the box. When I get home I find that although the box is on standby the blue internet light is on and it does not go off until I turn the box on and off. So I miss programs I am trying to record.

Any solutions please.

Hi

I don't think you can set the recordings unless you are on the same wifi as the fetch box, could be wrong though and it wouldn't be the first time.

However most tv programs are on catch up so you can see them when you are home via the fetch apps or the easier way for me is to cast them to the tv using Chromecast.

Hi Davelew,

I am afraid you are wrong this time. That is the whold point of havingthe mobild app - to be able to set recordings when away from home. Unfortunately it does not seem very reliable.

As I said not for the first time.

I am away from home at the moment as, as before, doesn't show the FTA programs, only the streamed Fetch channels.  That's why I thought you needed to be on the same wifi otherwise how does the app know which area FTA channels to record.

Re: Fetch App connection to Fetch Mighty Box

I have been able to set a recording away from home before. However my issue does not only relate to fta channels but also to my package channels.
