Re: upgrade

Yes, different boxes. The V6 has even less internet support then the tivo as the tivo used to have an internet modem built into it.

The V6 now needs to be connected to the superhub to get some if its streaming content such as iPlayer and for guide and software updates.

So you keep the superhub as is but need to connect the V6 to it.

Re: upgrade

A longer cable is best, if you don't mind it going across the room, otherwise look at wifi, or powerline adapters (both more expensive and lower quality).

Although if you keep the hub where it is, it can connect to the V6 through wifi at no extra cost.. and across a room should be ok.
