tivo installed

Hi, was wondering how this would work. I currently have virgin broadband and phone which comes into my front room. I am looking at having a tivo box installed for tv but this would be in my backroom. Years ago Ntl ran a cable through my loft and down the outside wall and back into the back room. This cable has since been cut. When they are installing tivo would they do the same thing or will they want to move the super hub and the phone connection into the back room as well

Re: tivo installed

Does the tivo have its own broadband connection

Re: tivo installed

it doesn't need it's own connection to your BB hub, it has it's own internal 10meg modem to handle those services that need it, that said...

 

you can connect your TiVo to your hub if you want but all you'd gain is app based remote control functions, you could try a couple of Powerline Homeplug thingies if the distance/location makes cabling a pain.

Re: tivo installed

Re: tivo installed

Yes you can. TV anywhere uses the internet and not your Tivo.

Re: tivo installed

Because the TiVo will be in another room will it make any difference to the picture quality. How does the TiVo rate against sky hd. I have a freesat hd box at the minute but have had sky in the past

Re: tivo installed

TV anywhere doesn't use your Tivo it uses the internet connection so the location of the Tivo makes no difference. Same room. 500 Miles away will be the same
