How to Connect TiVo to home network.

How do I connect Tivo to my network by using a smart TV wireless adapter? I have a Virgin Media Netgear USB adapter and a Samsung Smart TV adapter, but they don't seem to work.

You can't use a USB wireless adapter. You need either Homeplugs or something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-WR702N-Wireless-Extender-Set-top/dp/B006PYGWG6/ as the network connection if via the Ethernet socket only

So why does it say you can use a Smart TV wireless adapter?

...because a USB wireless adapter is not a Smart TV wireless adapter. The adapter in my other post is a Smart TV wireless adapter.

The link it gives is to this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005LDM53G which is not a USB adapter.

 

I'll feed back that the wording needs changing to make it clearer what it's suggesting you use

Also what are you hoping to accomplish by connecting it to your home network?

To be able to use TV Anywhere as a remote. Why would you need to ask this?

Some people have expectations that they can watch their recorded tivo shows on the app.

Just wanted to be sure
