I recently received 2 tele box’s, the one downstairs is all set up with wires plugged into the “virgin wall box”. For the second one does this also need to be plugged into a virgin wall box or can this simply run off WiFi? I don’t fancy having a virgin wall box installed in my bedroom. Any help please! Thank you 🙂
Hi mike, thanks for getting back to me. So for a dummie like me, does this mean yes it needs to be hard wired into a virgin wall box?
thank you again, 🙂
The boxes have linear broadcast cable tuners & just as Freeview needs a rooftop aerial & Sky needs a dish connected by coax, your VM boxes need a direct connection to Virgin’s coax to work. They use the same technology. Second boxes should not be offered self-install for this very reason.
