Re: v6 boxes not linked

Similar problem here, I have just spoken to virgin tech on the telephone and have been told that my two v6 boxes need to connect to the network with powerline kits to be able to access each boxes recordings. They do not connect to each other wirelessly, this was a suprise to me and a dissapointment.

They do, but if you've set the box up via Ethernet, then you need to set it up again to work via wifi as well.

Re: v6 boxes not linked

My V6 boxes work fine but do not access each others programs, why are Virgin sending me powerlink kits if they are supposed to work wirelessly? The technician on the phone spoke to her manager who stated they do not share programs wirelessly? I am confused.
