Connecting TiVo box to my network.

I have set up my TiVo box to use with tv anywhere on my I pad. My router is in another room but I can print and use internet in my lounge where the TiVo box is.

My iPad still says my TiVo box is not connected. 

Any ideas please.

You need to connect the RJ45 port on the back of your TiVo to your super-hub

You don't need to make that connection.

Only channels with a wifi symbol can be streamed. Try 104.

Re: Connecting TiVo box to my network.

If the TiVo is in another room, you still need to establish a connection. So you can:

* Run an RJ45 cable
* Use power line adaptors

But establishing this connection just enables you to use your mobile device as a remote. You don't need to do any of this just for streaming.

Re: Connecting TiVo box to my network.

Hi thanks for your reply.

I thought I could make the connection through my wifi.

My router is in the loft.

It will be a big job to run a cable from one side of the house to the other and up to the loft to connect to my router.

Re: Connecting TiVo box to my network.

You still haven't said what you are hoping to achieve by making this connection.

As we've said, all this connection does is enable you to use your portable device as a glorified remote control for your TiVo box.  You can stream live TV without it.
