Connect old TiVo via WiFi?

Hi

I have recently activated my old TiVo box after receiving the upgraded V6 last year. I want to use this in the bedroom and the chat  operator assured me I could connect this via WiFi once I had set up the £7.50 monthly payment for additional signal. How do I do this? There is no option in set up for WiFi connection...it won’t even connect when I bring the box downstairs and connect via Ethernet!! Please help!

Re: Connect old TiVo via WiFi?

Two reasons you can’t use the TiVo connected only by WiFi:

1. TiVo doesn’t have any WiFi capability;

2. All Virgin Media set top boxes, including TiVo, MUST be connected to the cable co-ax.

You can swap the boxes round as the V6 can connect via WiFi.

...but I suspect the OP wants the box to work without a co-ax connection.

And I also suspect that the chat operator failed to tell the OP that the connection of the TiVO to the hub is to enable the boxes to communicate with each other over the LAN.
