New V6 Box and old Tivo Box

New V6 Box now installed with good wireless connection. The old TIVO box now residing in another room is connected by ethernet and powerline to hub (as before). Initially the new V6 'saw' the TIVO for sharing resources like recorded programmes, but now the V6 does not recognise it. Any ideas?

Re: New V6 Box and old Tivo Box

try directly connecting tivo with Ethernet without the powerlines?

If you have a phone with the anywhere app, can it see both boxes and control both boxes using the remote in the app?

Also make sure the TiVo box is on. Doesn't seem to recognise it in sleep mode. Not sure if it does notice it snooze.

Mine seems to work fine with the tivo in sleep mode. Mine (V6 and Tivo) are both connected wired to the same switch though..
