Wi-fi dongles for Tivos

My parents have got a Tivo, can Tivos connect to a virgin hub via wi-fi and if they can will any usb w-fi dongle do or would it have to be a special dongle? Would the Tivo be able to stream programs saved on their V6 boxes (and vice versa)?

Re: Wi-fi dongles for Tivos

The non V6 TiVo does not have WiFi capability.  The usb port is not enabled.

So for box to box streaming it would need to be connected to the hub network via direct ethernet cable or by using ethernet capable powerline adapters.
