Google WiFi and Fios - Watch Live TV from Fios app

Hi All

Just upgraded to 1GB speed and now have the following setup with the Quantum Router setup as a bridge (disabled wifi, dhcp...):

ONT -> WAN Google Wifi LAN -> LAN Fios Quantum Router

The Quantum still has the coax so it can feed my two set top boxes.

All seems fine and I can see all devices in my house, including my set top boxes, through the Google WiFi app.

However, now I notice that when I try to watch live TV on the Fios app, I only get a limited number of channel options as it says I am not connected to my home network.

Has anyone experienced this and found a rememdy?

I imagine the solution is to enable wifi on the Quantum router and connect to that network only when I want to watch live local TV from the app.  Hoping that is not the case though. 

Hope to hear from some other options.

Thanks.

I believe app is looking for STBs on the same network.
So if subnet of WIFI is not the same as that for STB, that is probably the reason.

Did this solution work?  I want to buy the Google WiFi system for my house to have a mesh network
