What powerline is required

Hope this is the right area for help...
I've got my 2 tivo boxes and I'm wanting to connect them so I can watch shows recorded on 1 on the other, which and what powerline(s) would be best for this?
The main tivo as I call it is next to my hub and the other is in an upstairs room
Many thanks in advance

Re: What powerline is required

assuming that can even be done via powerline- I dunno exactly how the 2 Tivo thing works ( I would have thought it all goes via the virgin cables), then even  the cheapest powerline starter kit option will have more than enough bandwidth.

update: I see here that powerline is an option

http://help.virginmedia.com/system/selfservice.controller?CMD=VIEW_ARTICLE&ARTICLE_ID=27612&CURRENT_...

 so any basic starter kit ( 2 matching units + cables) should do the trick

e.g. this for £20 at amazon

Hi Rosie11,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

The post by cymbole sums it up perfectly! You can indeed use any powerline kit to connect your TiVo® boxes.

 

If you follow the setup in the link cymbole has provided, you should have no problem getting your Multi-room streaming up and running!

 

Give us a shout if you need anything else.

 

All the best Smiley Very Happy

 

Josh
