I have a Samsung smart TV, connected wirelessly to my Virgin superhub to access its smart functions, and via HDMI to my V+ box. I have now acquired a less-smart Sony Blu-Ray DVD player, connected via HDMI to the TV - less-smart in that it needs to connect to the Internet to access updates and its few smart functions; but it doesn't allow wireless connection - it needs an ethernet cable to connect to the Internet.
My question is: what are my options for connecting this ethernet cable? The V+ box has an ethernet socket; but looking online, this has in the past been disabled - is it still? And if not, will just connecting the ethernet cable to this socket do the trick? If this isn't an option - can I just run a long ethernet cable to the superhub and plug it into one of the three sockets I see near its base, and connect it that way? (Still a learner on these matters.)
