Re: Can't record any Star Treks with a series link

I have 2 boxes (V6 and Tivo) but I can't watch recordings that are on the Tivo via the V6 and vice versa because I don't know how to connect things in order to do the multi-room thing, which is a bit disappointing sometimes.


You need to connect the TiVo to the hub with an Ethernet cable.

Re: Can't record any Star Treks with a series link

@Lee_R. Yes, the problems have gone away Lee, and all seems to be working as expected. I posted that earlier.

@SpacePhoenix. I know how to access other boxes. My problem was that I didn't know how to connect them. I could connect TO them once they were connected. I'd rearranged stuff a while back and never managed to reconnect the cables as they were.

@Roger_Gooner. Thank you for that tip. I did it and all is well now. I probably missed that because the Tivo was already connected to the hub via what I think is a coax cable. I'm pretty sure that I can connect both boxes to each other too. I did that originally, and I may have to again because the hub soon won't have enough network sockets when I add another Raspberry Pi to the internet, although I may be able to connect one socket to another router and connect more than one computer via that.

If you have an old router it can be repurposed to extend your network in a LAN to LAN configuration. I have made multiple posts on how to do this.
