Hi all, just had my old TiVo swapped out with a new V6.
The V6 is currently connected via Powerline to my SuperHub. But, I thought V6 was wireless? How do I connect it to my wireless network? I can't see any options in the Network Setting screen to enter my wireless connection details.
Or does the V6 require a Powerline connection to my SuperHub?

I've just ordered a V6 box and have been wondering the same thing since the guy on the phone told me the router has to be no more than 3 metres away from the TV. I currently use the SuperHub in modem only mode and use a TP link router. They're both in my little 'office' at the front of the house. The TV is probably slightly more then 3m (diagonally) away in the downstairs room.
What does the installation of a V6 entail (over that over the standard TiVo box that we've had for some time now)? The guy on the phone mentioned moving the router closer to the TV but I really don't want that as there are a number of things hardwired into the router in the office. Would the engineer consider running CAT5 cable around the house - or is that out of his remit? I guess another option would be to invest in another powerline set but I might need an extra plug socket to be fitted behind the TV for that to be most effective.
Given you have a separate router, possibly for wifi reach reasons, you'll probably be OK with a wifi connection to V6. It can use either 2.4GHz or 5GHz band, whichever provides the more resilient signal.
