Upgrade to v6 boxes

Today I will hopefully get 2 tivo boxes swapped over to new v6 boxes. Am I correct in thinking that my Superhub 2 will also be swapped out for a Superhub 3

 

Thanks

 

Tim

Re: Upgrade to v6 boxes

No. You are able to have the V6 boxes with a SuperHub 2. Officially whether you'd be upgraded to a Hub 3.0 depends on your broadband service.

Thanks for the quick response Ben. I currently have 200M BB so I will see what the engineer brings this afternoon

Re: Upgrade to v6 boxes

Engineer been and installed 2 new v6 boxes, both working well with no problems. Engineer was in and out in under an hour, he was happy with easy install and I was happy with rapid service.
I will keep you all updated if any problems or not

Re: Upgrade to v6 boxes

Don't be so anxious to grab a superhub 3. It seems that a lot of people are suffering from speed issues when these things are first connected. I still feel that my Superhub 2 was far better and gave me top speed at all times. The only thing noticeable is the Wi Fi is indeed better on the Hub 3 and the menus are a little more detailed, but not as good in my opinion as the Hub 2 menus (You cannot kick anyone who is connected to your router in the menus).

24 hours and no problems so far. Both v6 boxes are hard wired to SuperHub2 and have been well behaved

Re: Upgrade to v6 boxes

All 3 boxes, TiVo 1TB and 2 TiVo v6, are now connected to home network by ethernet cables and I am able to view any recording on any box on any tv. Very useful feature I must say
