TiVo 1 connected to router but not TV, linked over Powerline to TiVo 2?

Hello, I have just moved into a rented house. Router and TiVo box have been set up in one room where the connection comes into the house, but I want the TV to be set up in a different room - we couldn't have any holes drilled and a cable run thru as it's rented.

I was looking into HD over IP but that was really expensive - if I got a 2nd TiVo box instead, could I use it to control/access the first main TiVo box connecting via a Powerline adapter?

The 1st TiVo box would sit in a fuse box cupboard with the router, not connected to any TV, but connected via Ethernet to a powerline which would be linked to another powerline leading into the 2nd TiVo box in the lounge area?

Would this work? Could I access the "main" TiVo box for setting progs to record etc, normal hammer surfing etc?

Also, any idea how much a 2nd TiVo would cost per month if this was a viable option? Just signed up to the £29 per month Player TV package.

Any help appreciated!
Thanks
Barry

You're solution won't work as ALL Virgin Media set top boxes MUST be connected to a cable co-ax connection.

Thanks for your reply - is there another solution to my question that doesn't involve lots of cabling?

Given that TiVo has to be connected to your TV by an HDMI cable and you don't want to install cabling between rooms, I don't see a solution unless there is a product out there that can transmit HDMI through the ether or your electrical wiring.

I don't have any knowledge of such products but would think they, if they exist, would be expensive.
