Re: Super Hub 3

It can be connected via wifi, but a wired connection is preferable in order to guarantee connection speed.

Re: Super Hub 3

If your SH2 is backed by at least a 100Mbps broadband connection, then it should be fine.

Re: Super Hub 3

Hi daveaegginton, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums Smiley Happy

 

The minimum requirement for the V6 box is a Superhub 2 and 100mb. 

 

You are able to connect the V6 box to your hub via wireless too but we would prefer it, and recommend connecting via ethernet cable instead Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

Re: Super Hub 3

Hi,

i have mine coming in a few weeks. I currently have SH2 and 200mb line but i use the SH2 in passthrough mode and use an Apple Airport tombroadcast WiFi around the house.

Should the V6 be connected to Airport through Ethernet?

 

Matt

Re: Super Hub 3

Yes, customers using their Superhub in Modem Mode with an attached router will need to connect V6 to their router (via one of the three possible options - Ethernet cable, wifi or powerline).

Re: Super Hub 3

I assume that my network set up is ready for the V6 despite the fact that my SH2 is located in a room in the centre of the house while the Tivo to be replaced is located in the living room at the front of the house.  The location is defined by two realities, that it is a large, old, house with internal walls as thick as the external walls of many modern houses and the fact that we have adult children who, constantly, access the internet via WiFi.  I also have a WiFi booster.

I, on the other hand, prefer wired connections where possible and this is very relevant to the V6 installation. I have just upgraded parts of my network and I run a cable from the router to one side of the living room where it joins a gigabit switch. I use that for my laptop, from where I am posting, and speed tests give me results in the range 205 - 221 Mbps. An output cable from that switch runs around the walls to the opposite corner where the TV and AV equipment is housed and into another 8 port gigabit switch to which is connected a number of devices, including the Tivo (which I have not used for MRS up until now), an Amazon Fire box and a Now TV box. Both of the latter provide excellent service.

A speed test on the second switch, to which the V6 will be attached, gives results in the range 217-223 Mbps. I suspect that my installation will meet the requirements.

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

Re: Super Hub 3

As long as it's on the same internal network this should be more than adequate.

Last time I looked the highest bandwidth content was BBC in HD which ran at ~18Mbps so, with a great degree of headroom, as you can sustain 25Mbps and burst to 50Mbps it'll be fine.

The same numbers (maybe up to 25% higher) will apply if you have a desire to stream 4K from Netflix.

Good news, I just set up my new connection to the other Tivo and can see the My Shows on from either box.

Bad news, the cable layout is only temporary at this  point and there will be hell to pay when the boss comes home. I will tidy it all up, honestly.
