Spectrum TV IOS App, without Spectrum WIFI Router

Hello, the Spectrum TV IOS app now works great, and I want to keep it that way.


I want to change the Spectrum Modem/WIFI Router combo out and use a Spectrum Modem and my own WIFI Router. Will this break the Spectrum TV app?


How does the app know that it is the home WIFI and that it is ok to enable all of the features including the DVR?

    The app authenticates the account based on the IP address of the modem. You can use any router you wish as long as it is connected to the modem on your Spectrum internet.


    Until 2 weeks ago I used my own modem and router with no issues.
