TiVo multiroom

How much would it cost to get TiVo multiroom for another room in my house. The information on virgins website is limited about what it does exactly like how to set it up and what channels it gets. Does multiroom only allow one TiVo box in the house to work at one time. Thanks

You need coax in the room to connect a Virgin TV box to.

Should be a fiver a month for a second TiVo on most packages.

Both TiVo's will have all the channels in your package and can be used simultaneously.

Re: TiVo multiroom

Is there anyway to get a another box without the installation of a cable as my original tivo box is in the front room of the house and I want this one installed on the other side of the house.I would prefer no wires running through the room. Thanks

Re: TiVo multiroom

Do Virgin have any product like the Sky Q Mini boxes.

Nope. All VM's TV boxes need connected to coax.

If the room you want it in has an outside wall they can usually come round from the omnibox and through the external wall, but Ive never seen one at the opposite side of the house to it. Cable run from omnibox is likely too long.

It's possible - at home there's quite a run between the omnibox and the diagonally opposite corner of the house where the TV is situated. I may be lucky in that I'm a stone's throw from the street cabinet so power levels aren't too much of an issue.
