wanting to use the TV control app with my tivo, however app says it cant find the tv on the home network.
The router box is not in same room as tivo, do i have to use powerline boosters/ethernet cables or can the box be connected via wifi? (does the 500gb box even have wifi?)
You will need to connect by Ethernet or Powerlines as the Tivo 500 doesn't have wireless.

A TiVo only needs connected by Ethernet if you want to use the Virgin TV Control app as a replacement for your physical remote control.
All other functions of the app are available without this connection.
