The multiroom offering from VM seems very poor compared to Sky. As I understand it a second box can only stream (recorded material) from a master and receive live a very small subset of the broadcast channels (none of the major ones). Is this true? If so I will be sticking to Sky , reluctantly. Pity really as I already have broadband and telephone from VM
Multiroom boxes are all connected to the incoming coax cable, & just like Sky Multiroom boxes, are totally independent of each other. You get the same channel selection on each box. There are differences between the TiVO & the VHD boxes. TiVO boxes (as well as a recording box with 3 TV tuners) have an internet modem, so can access third party OD content & services such as Netfix. VHD boxes only have a single TV tuner, so cannot record, & only have access to OD content from Virgin's own servers.
Connecting a TiVO to your Virgin superhub is only required for remote recording, using a mobile device as a remote, & streaming existing recordings (where allowed) to another TiVO box on the same account.
