Why do I need to connect my super hub with my tv box?

Why do I need to connect my super hub with my virgin tv box?

Is there a way not to use a cable?

Re: Why do I need to connect my super hub with my tv box?

It depends on which TV box you have.

The new V6 TV box requires an Internet connection to deliver on demand content and update the EPG.  This box has the option to do this via a wireless connection but wired is recommended.

The older TiVo box only uses the Ethernet connection to provide a virtual remote control via the TV Anywhere app.  All on demand content on this box is delivered via the coax cable.

Okay thanks for your help.

I'll look into maybe buying the latest one as you said.
