Re: getting tivo

You have to have a Virgin cable in the room where the tivo is going, if you don't have this you can't do a self install

in that case it should be as easy as swapping whatever your current hub is for the SH3 and your V HD box for the TiVo - ensure you swap the power supplies on each device as well.

follow the activation steps for the TiVo step by step and you should be fine, hopefully your SH3 will drop straight in.

get on the phone to CS if you run into any trouble, they're there to help.

Re: getting tivo

I have just taken a look at my cables, inside my front door I have a box one cable go down to a splitter then there two more cables they are under my flooring. One go to the router in my back room the other go to front room and that go into V HD Box so will this be ok for the TiVo and the hub 3 with vivid 100

remove coax cables from existing tv box and hub and use them for the new kit.
