Re: V6 Box

An Ethernet connection would be best, but one or both could connect via Wifi or power line adapters.

Some people have had problems getting 2V6's working reliably at the same time via WiFi

Re: V6 Box

That's complete rubbish. As long as the two are connected to your network (the TiVo via Ethernet, the V6 by Ethernet, powerline, or wifi), then you should be able to watch recordings from one box on the other.

Which shop was it?


TV: XL+SkySports V6
BB: 200Mbps SuperHub: Arris
Loc: ME10

Re: V6 Box

They are incorrect.

Assuming you retain and pay for the TiVo and it is connected to both the co-ax and your home network via powerline or direct Ethernet cable, you can watch all of your TiVo recordings on the TV connected to the V6.

Re: V6 Box

Hi Colinalbert, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you've been given some incorrect information. 

 

As mentioned by both Ernie and PrinterElf, you will be able to do this as long as both the V6 and the TiVo® are connected to the same home network. 

 

The V6 needs to be connected to the Home Network anyway so just connect the TiVo® up via Ethernet or Powerline adapters and you're away to go.

 

This link will help you to set things up for you to Watching recordings on another Virgin TV box

 

Let us know if you need help with anything else. 

 

Thanks,

Re: V6 Box

Hi Colinalbert, 

 

You'll need to purchase them from us at the same time in order for the engineer to do this. 

 

If you purchase ones from elsewhere then the engineer won't set them up. 

 

It is easy to set them up though and this video will help you: Setting up and securing a Powerline network

 

Keep us posted Smiley Happy
