Ethernet cable connection

Hi, i was advised to be able to watch programs recorded on one TiVo box, on another we need an Ethernet cable. I assumed this was to connect the hub to the primary TiVo box, but the instructions we have been sent talk about connecting to a pc. Please can you help? Thanks

Re: Ethernet cable connection

Tivos have to be connected to the hub, v6 boxes can do this over wifi

I work for Virgin Media and my posts are my own opinions

Re: Ethernet cable connection

Re: Ethernet cable connection

Thanks. They currently are connected by WiFi but we can’t use the ‘watch another TiVo box’. When I called Virgin they advised we need to connect the hub with an Ethernet cable to the primary TiVo box to make that work. They sent a cable with instructions, But these are about connecting a pc.

Re: Ethernet cable connection

so they are both Tivo V6 boxes. its best to connect them by cable as wifi often is not fast enough for Multiroom streaming.

If they are both connected you should see them under other tivo boxes in the recorded shows
