Own router with multiple V6 boxes

I have just gotten virgin for the first time and I have two V6 boxes and I understand that I can view recordings on one from the other. 

If I was to replace the broadband hub from virgin with my own would I still be able to do this?

For the V6 to work you must only use Virgin Media's Broadbsnd.

Re: Own router with multiple V6 boxes

Keith is correct in that you must use the VM Hub and broadband - but you can put it in modem mode and use your own wireless router and you can still view recordings from box to box.
I have 3 V6's and my own router and its all hunky dory. They do work better though if you can connect them to your router with Cat6 ethernet cable rather than wifi.

Yes, you can use a different router (it doesn't replace the VM one, you switch the VM one to "modem mode" and then plug your router into it), but you can then connect the V6 boxes to your router instead of the VM one. However, as stated, you do have to have Virgin broadband, you can't change that and keep the V6s.
