Oh really thought it would be similar to sky q .. no cable and powered via usb. only reason I got it really thinking that .. glad I asked before trying to set up. Will send back. Thanks Paul for your input.
The 360mini can only be used with the main 360 box. It also needs it's own coax cable connection and either an ethernet or wifi connection to your Hub/router. It can only be powered with the supplied power supply.
Can the Sky Q mini be powered only by USB from the TV?!
The Virgin TV 360 Mini boxes are a lot more powerful than the Sky Q ones, they have their own tuners rather than sharing the main box capabilities, and are all 4K UHD compatible, again the Sky ones aren't. It's at the cost of being less mobile but I dont see that as an issue.
