Sharing TiVo boxes

I am supposed to be able to watch shows recorded on one TiVo box on the other - I can't. Under my shows the other TiVo box isn't shown.

One box is connected straight to the hub and the other via powerline. I've checked network settings and the connection s look fine.

Re: Sharing TiVo boxes

I would first try a restart of your Superhub, just turn it off, wait and then turn back on.

When you are sure it is up and running, check to see if each TiVo can see the other.

If not, try resetting both TiVos to see if it then works.

Re: Sharing TiVo boxes

If you plug the ethernet lead that goes from the TiVo to the Powerline - so it goes into a laptop instead of TiVo - is that laptap able to use the Internet fine?

Also, may be worth posting details of the PowerLine device - as some don't seem to work with all devices.

Re: Sharing TiVo boxes

I referred to these originally but they're pretty basic and don't solve my problem.

Re: Sharing TiVo boxes

I neglected to mention that the same powerline adaptors have been used to successfully connect my smart TVs to the Internet but I have never been able to watch recordings on my laptop as it says the TiVo box is not connected to the Internet when The TiVo is plugged into the powerline adaptor so they may be a more fundamental problem

You can't watch recordings on your laptop at all...

Re: Sharing TiVo boxes

Here's something to try

Home --> Help & Settings --> Settings --> Network --> Change Network Settings --> Get Automatically from a DHCP
