Connection from external cable box to tv

Please can someone tell me if it is possible to connect your tivo box to the incoming cable box without have to use a cable between them? I currently have a cable running from one end of a room to the other to connect the tivo box to where the cable point comes into the house.

All VM boxes need to be connected directly to the coax, so unfortunately not, no.

VM's TV boxes don't receive channels via broadband (IPTV), they receive linear channels the same way as Freeview TV & Satellite boxes do. So a direct connection is required.
