Multiroom and power line adapters

Hi there

I was wondering. I just have a TiVo in the lounge by the hub at the moment and would like to be able to watch TV in another room.

To do this can I just have an Ethernet cable running out my power line adapter in the bedroom into the back of the box I choose? I.e HD box or TiVo.

Is that it? Just because I don't want wires running anywhere between the rooms for a new box.

Also, if i just get the HD box and not another TiVo, is there any way of watching the recorded shows from the TiVo in my lounge in the bedroom?

Thank you in advance!

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

no if you have a second box it must be connected to the cable network.

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

All TV boxes need to be connected to Virgins network coax cable. Splitting/Extending the cable would be included as part of the Multiroom box install.

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

Great thanks!!! Can it be any coax off amazon or is it a specific type of coax cable?

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

Cable is specially made for Virgin, but dont worry about that as its a manned install & the install engineer will install the cable to the new box, & adjust the signal levels.

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

Thanks very much nodrogd

The only thing is...I'm redoing my bathroom and want to run coax under the floorboards now so I don't have wires all round the house. However I'm not planning on getting multiroom for a few months so will need to source the coax cable myself. Can I get any coax cable? Thanks!

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

As already said, its specialised cable that is not available over the counter. Satellite/Freeview coax is not up to the job as interference can leak back onto the network & cause all sorts of problems, not just with your installation but your neighbours. If you can arrange to lift the floorboards, an installer will happily lay cables where you want, by DIY-ing the job is not an option.

Re: Multiroom and power line adapters

Just to mention. Installers can also route cables externally around a property (but not over roofs) to connect equipment.
