Moving Tivo box between rooms

I'm wanting to move this box upstairs to one of the bedrooms. The room has a wall box is it just a matter of transferring it straight up? Do i need to move my router upstairs to or can it be powered through wifi?

Thanks

Hello

As long as the coaxial connection is active upstairs then yes you can just move it.

Depends on which box you have is it a V6 or a Tivo, if it is a V6 it will connect to wireless for any internet provided services like youtube, netflix etc. If it is a Tivo then it has an inbuilt modem so doesnt need an internet connection.

Re: Moving Tivo box between rooms

Is there any way to know if its active besides just plugging in and hoping? If its inactive is it just a matter of contacting Virgin to reactive and is there any additiinal charge

Thanks for the help

Hello

The only way is to connect the box, the cable is a physical connection and if not active only an engineer can do it and there may be a non fault charge of £99 to do the work.
