Newbie V6 Tivo question about what is the ethernet/wifi connection for?

Hi !

Our old Tivo box is being replaced with a V6 box this week and I see from the installation video that it has the ability to connect to our home network via ethernet and wifi.

The only info I've found on what this is for just says 'it works best'.

Please can someone tell me if there is anything useful the connection is for? 

thanks

On the TiVO box the internet connection was optional, as the box had its own internet modem.

On the V6 there is no such equipment, so connection to your hub via Ethernet or WiFi is mandatory for the box to work. The box uses the hub to initialise, receive guide & update data, use the apps & on demand services. Only the live channels are delivered direct through the coax.
