I am unable to program/manage DVR online or via the smart phone app, and I consistently get the message that my DVR may be offline (error code 9-6-72-652-001 online and 9-6-24-652-001 on the app).
I have tried rebooting and power-cycling my DVR, and contacting support, to no avail. I was even told by support that I needed Enhanced DVR for this feature, but I believe this was inaccurate. Standard DVR features clearly states "Program and manage your DVR online or from your compatible smart phone."
Does anyone know a fix for this issues that does not require tech providing me with a new STB/DVR? My model is VMS1100.

Are you using FIOS router?
You need to do initial control while connected to your home network.
Once your device is registered to your DVR, you should have control outside of your house.
Plug a Verizon router into your coax network. Plug the set-top-box into the same coax network. They will connect automatically over coax. You can confirm the connection by looking at the active devices on the router's management page.
If you're not using a Verizon router, more complex setup is required and not all FiOS features may work.
So you can watch them while not in the house?
I use it often when visiting relatives to watch recorded shows.
And if you have Verizon wireless, you can watch the content without it counting against your data plan.
