Re: Tivo Box without cable

Hi!

What happened please? I want to allow someone in our household to watch programmes recorded on the TIVO while they isolate with COVID. Is there some way to just turn Tivo into a straight player?

Thanks

Tivo Box without cable

Virgin is a cable TV operator, all VM TV boxes need a co-ax cable connection to work.

Have you considered using the TV Control app on a compatible Android or iOS device to stream recordings at home?

Re: Tivo Box without cable

Thanks but I don't have one. How frustrating. I thought if the Tivo box were disconnected it would still be able to work. Apparently not. OK, thanks for your help.
