V6 Box and Home network

Hi,

I'm due to upgrade to a V6 box and keep my old Tivo as a second box. I have a Gigabit home network with a 48 port Gigabit switch.  My Superhub runs in modem mode and is in the same closet as the switch and patch panel.

dumb question.  Will the V6 box work straight over the home network and will it talk to the TiVo box over the network.  Both will have hardwired Gigabit connections (as does the superhub), although they are about 30 feet apart.

Thanks

Re: V6 Box and Home network

They should just work one you've set them up for network remote control etc, if they won't talk to each other reboot them both at the same time(ish)

Yes no problem, my setup is pretty much the same... well multiple gigabit switches and nothing as pro as a 48 port one..

That sounds like mine and it also works just fine.

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