I have 2 tivo boxes and neither have the option in my shows to select 'other tivo boxes.  Is there any way of getting this on, or a reason why its not there.  Thank you

If one TiVo doesn't have an Ethernet connection to your hub, that's why they can't multiroom stream. If you have just the incoming co-ax, then you'll have TV & inbuilt internet only.

It's the Ethernet connection that provides multiroom streaming & remote management of recordings.

This advice only applies to TiVo, and not the newer V6 which runs TiVo-software. https://www.virginmedia.com/care/tv-fault/which-tv-box

Do both of your TiVo's have an Ethernete connection to your home-hub?

If yes, has this facility worked before? A restart of each TiVo-in-turn, would be the first check if it has.

Thank you for the quick reply.  The box in the living room is connect to the hug via ethernet, the box upstairs has the coaxial from when it was installed, no ethernet. Thanks
