V6 Box Connected via Powerline Adapters

Firstly apologies for the long winded post, but I am a bit of a luddite.

I am an existing Virgin customer with the following set up:

- Tivo box and router in living room

- V+ box in bedroom (connected via the junction box on the outside of the property)

We want to move the 'bedroom' box into a loft extension and do not want to have any external cabling and hole drilling from outside the property.

Am I right  in thinking that I could get a V6 box in the extension (to replace the old V+ box), retain the existing living room set-up (TiVo box) and connect the V6 via a powerline adapters as follows:

- one from router (in the living room) to the electricity socket

- one from the V6 box (in the extension) to the electricity socket.

Thanks

No, the V6 needs a coaxial connection

Hi TomKearney,

You can certainly use the powerline adapter to connect the Ethernet connection from the V6 box to the router but the V6 box it's self will still require a Virgin Coax cable to it for the actual channels to work.

Hope this helps
