V6 and ethernet

So the hub can be in one room and the V6 under the TV and connect with a CAT 6 cable, do virgin supply a cat 6 cable

I quotefrom Virgin

"A match made in heaven Brilliant TV and a fast connection make an unbeatable combination. For your Virgin TV V6 box to work best, we’ll set your Virgin Media Hub up close to it and connect them with an Ethernet cable."

Re: V6 and ethernet

If your question is, do virgin run ethernet cables, then the answer is no, they try to locate the hub next to tv but if its no good then the v6 can use wifi

Re: V6 and ethernet

The white cable gives tv content, Ethernet gives EPG and on demand

So yes it needs both
