Re: TV 360 and own router

Short answer is yes.

Both V6 & 360 require VM broadband, but not necessarily the VM router. I use my V6 with my own router and the hub in modem mode, as do others.

Re: TV 360 and own router

So i guess the setup would be :

Broadband cable => VM HUB (set as modem)

Plug Ethernet cable from VM Hub to Own Router

From router plug VM TV box and any other device.

 

Correct?

Spot on!!

One ethernet cable from your hub to the router, and all devices then connect your router.

Edited to add: Just remember both the hub & 360 need their own independent co-ax connections.

Hi alphaklg, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

As mentioned by japitts, you are able to use your own router however you do need VM broadband. It's also worth noting that should you have any issues with your broadband and/or TV service, you may need to disconnect your third party equipment for troubleshooting. 

If you have any issues, pop back and let us know. 

Thanks,

One other thing to be aware of, you can also connect your TV360 boxes wirelessly if an ethernet cable is not practical.

As already mentioned though the coaxial cable would still be needed.
