Lots of posts on this by others but none appear to answer exactly so apologies if you feel is duplicate...
I have the old style Tivo despite only being a customer for the last year. I understand it does not have Wifi but it does have Ethernet and I have powerline adaptors to combat that. My VM coax comes in nowhere near TVs so I want my Tivo to run over Ethernet without the VM coax plugged in. I've done this but it never leaves the starting up screen. Is this not possible? If it is, what could I be doing wrong?
If not possible, would a v6 Tivo work for me over WiFi to my mesh network when the VM coax is disconnected? If so, how do I get a v6? I'm led to understand all customers were upgraded in 2018 so probably have one of their return old boxes!
Given we're in 2020 and WiFi is more than capable of multiple UHD video streams to devices in the home I do not think it required a sarcastic response like that given that the coax would still terminate in the VM router. VM incidentally confuse matters by classing FTTP as a coax cable thru the house wall as opposed to fibre optics.
