Virgin media provide me with both Tivo and wifi. I have 150Mbps broadband. If I watch bbc iplayer on my ipad using wifi, I do not get any buffering, but, I do when using my Tivo box.
Surely the same signal comes through the wires under my front lawn and then is split to my router and my Tivo box.
Why then does one buffer and the other not ?????????

They are using two different internet connections and two different devices to run the iPlayer application.
Your iPad has more resources than the TiVo for running the application.
TiVo has its own 10Mb DOCSIS 1 internet connection and your Superhub has a much faster DOCSIS 3 connection. The connection that TiVo has is almost certainly more congested as well.
