Moving SuperHub to same room as TiVo

Hi all.

 

At present, my SuperHub is upstaits, and my TiVo box is downstairs.

 

Each has their own separate cable connection.

 

I want to move the SuperHub downstairs, into the same room as the TiVo box, to improve wifi reception.

 

Do I need some kind of splitter, so that the SuperHub and the TiVo are both connected to the cable independently, or can I plug the cable into the SuperHub, and then the Tivo into the SuperHub (via ethernet cable)?

Both need direct connection to the VM cable - you can get a spliter but it may affect the signal levels

 

I'm sure somebody will be along with a recommendation shortly.

Re: Moving SuperHub to same room as TiVo

VM not only owns your boxes, but the coaxial connections that form part of the local network. DIY changes can affect that network, & cause problems not only for you but for your neighbours as well. So the advice is don't mess with it.

 

A non-fault callout has a standard charge of £99. This covers changes to the wiring, & any adjustments required at the street cabinet to rebalance your signal levels. Virgin do provide kits that include the splitters & short lengths of the specialised cable required. But if level adjustments are required, these would be of no use.
