Wireless connection

Do I have to use an Ethernet cable for Tv anywhere? I already connect wirelessly from my TiVo to the super hub so why can't this be used for the connection?

 

All the guides seem to have only cable or home plug as an option.

Hi - TV streams wirelessly for me to my laptop without any issues.

 

Once your device is registered then you can watch live TV according to your package - I get SkySports streamed without issues. Your Tivo box doesn't need to be connected by ethernet for this.

How do you have that set up?

Probably a wireless access point i.e. plug an ethernet cable from TiVO into access point. Access point talks to router, router and rest of network sees TiVo. There are loads on the market and you shouldn't need to spend more than £50 to get a good one,

If you already have TiVo talking to your SuperHub you don't have to change anything, however TiVo to TiVo streaming may not always work
