tivo box stuck on start up screen when no coax cable

Hi, 

After getting a new v6 box, i want to put the old tivo box in another room and connect them via ethernet so i can play the recorded shows on the V6 box on the old tivo box.  The old tivo box is a samsung SMT-C7100.

There is no coax cable in the room that i'm putting the old tivo box in.  So when i power up the old box it stays permanently at the starting up prompt.  the third led is blinking and the blue light is solid.

How do i convince the box to get past the "starting up" screen?

you can not. All boxes need to be connected to the VM network by coax and have a active subscription.
You'll need to have another box installed and pay for multiroom for the extra box
