Tv elsewhere

On our wavelength

I have a V6 box downstairs where the Virgin cabling comes in and I want to have tv upstairs, tv which I can pause, rewind, save etc. I believe the mini box doesn’t allow one to do this. My Virgin hub is upstairs. To achieve this arrangement I assume an engineer would be required to run a cable to the room upstairs and instal another V6 box or a 365 box. I wonder what this would cost.
is my thinking correct or is there another way of doing this?

360 box

Be clear what box you have, it matters. TiVo & V6 both run TiVo-software, TV360 runs Horizon software - and are fundamentally different in how their multi-room setups work. - also TiVo & V6 have the TiVo-logo in the top-right corner of the menu, TV360 doesn't.

If you have a V6, then an additional box is just that - additional box. Entirely separate from your existing V6 with its own hard drive and storage, but with multiroom streaming options.

If you have a TV360, additional boxes are minis without hard drives. All recording capabilities are on the master box which retains the one central pool of recordings. You don't mix boxes on the same account - you either have all TiVo/V6 or all TV360.

Connectivity is otherwise identical - every VM TV box needs a co-ax for live TV and internet connection (ideally Ethernet to your home-hub) for online services & streaming. If you don't have a co-ax connection point where you want to use the new box, you'll need a manned tech install.
