Tivo in different room to router

Hi,

Just received a TiVo Box. Told it was so easy to set up (not when it's in a different room to the router). Went out & bought a powerline adaptor. These are both connected to each other.
Plugged everything in but the box can't connect at all... Now I have a useless box.

Is there an issue with the box/area or something else I can try?

Bearing in mind we were talked into this package. We thought we would take advantage. Not much point now & paying for it.

You dont connect tivos by ethernet, you connect by the white coax

Re: Tivo in different room to router

just to add what jb66 said, the tivo doesn't need the ethernet connection for normal operation, its more for tvanywhere e.g. http://anywhere.virginmedia.com/
