Disingenuous Virgin

The whole idea behind replacing the V+ box upstairs with the Tivo which was downstairs (itself being replaced by a V6) was to being able to keep my tv programs by streaming them to the new V6.

As it turns out it is not possible, how stupid is that!  More to the point, what is the point in being able to stream from the main box (my V6) to the TIVO upstairs which is clearly not the most used of the 2!  If you can download the recording settings (which I did) from the TIVO to the V6 why not being able to migrate the programs as well?

I can watch recorded programs on both boxes on the app.  Big deal, who cares. 

And I miss my little red lights telling me that a program (or 3) is recording Smiley Sad

I will get used to all that but for the time being I am not happy.

Rant over

That is your problem. A TiVo can't be connected to your home network by wifi (unless you have some additional equipment which I am sure you don't have).

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

You can't transfer (copy) recordings from one box to the other just stream them.

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

As long as the V6 and old TiVo are connected to the same network - and you have waited for up to 24 hours after install - this should work fine.  It does here.

What error are you getting?

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

What you want is indeed possible. You simply don't have it working.

How is your TiVo connected to your home network, powerline adapters or direct Ethernet cable?

Can you see the TiVo at the foot of the My Shows menu on the V6?

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

I am not sure I understand the problem. I can watch recordings from my V6 on my TiVo and vice-versa. Can you clarify?

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

Hi All

Everything is wirelessly connected to the new Hub3 that was also installed now on 200MG speed.  However, this evening I went to the settings for the TIVO and did something in the "Network" submenu.  It did Connect Disconnect and a few other things.  That I had not done before, is this related?

Yesterday, on the Virgin website I did also name both boxes, designated V6 as the main one and also downloaded the settings from TIVO to the V6.  That has worked.

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

Aha

Customer service told me earlier this afternoon that I could watch V6 programs on the TIVO but not the other way around.  Should I call their technical support and find out what they can do?  Could I run an ethernet cable to the modem from the TIVO but let the V6 on wireless and "transfer" my recorded programs?

Re: Disingenuous Virgin

You can watch your TiVo recordings on the TV connected to your V6 and you can watch your V6 recordings on the TV connected to your TiVo but both the V6 and the TiVo must be connected to your Superhub.

TiVo can connect by powerline adapters or direct Ethernet cable to your Superhub.

V6 can connect by wifi in addition to powerline adapters and direct Ethernet cable to your Superhub.
