Hi there I was thinking of leaving Virgin because the Tivo box was too slow, I have now discovered the V6 box and it is supposed to be faster?. with my current Tivo box I use the scart output to transmit to all my other TV's via an RF converter, I have seen photos of the V6 box and it shows a round Scart out socket.
My question is :- Is this a scart socket and if so is there an adaptor to convert it to a standard scart.
I received a v6 yesterday and now have a problem....
Previously I was able to send the Tivo image from the ground floor to the loft room, allowing me to watch recordings etc on a second TV. I controlled this using the TV anywhere app. The image was sent by linking the Tivo scart to a Mercury RF Modulator. Via coax and a Labgear distribution unit the signal was sent to the second TV.
The V6 doesn't have a working SCART out...
So, is there a way of: 1. Using some kind of SCART adapter to connect the V6 to the Mercury modulator? 2. Linking the V6 and the second TV via ethernet? The two TVs are both linked to the home network (via a gigabit switch) using CAT 5 or 6 (I don't know which and I don't know how to check).
Hi there I have the same problem, the solution I am going to try is use a HDMI splitter connect one HDMI lead to my TV the other to a HDMI to scart converter, you can then connect the scart to the modulator. Its a long winded way (I am fortunate that I can put it all on a shelf in the garage) it was the cheapest way of doing it.
A word of warning if you are wanting 4K I understand you will only get HD using a splitter.
I have not got the splitter etc. yet but I will update you when I have it set up.
I have found one problem with the box (only had it 2 days) I programmed my series links by doing a search and then selecting the programme and getting a series link (I didn't use the EPG). I have just looked at my upcoming programmes and most are not there for recording. I have now deleted them all and series linked them using the EPG and they are all now going to record.
Let us know how you get on. This is the main reason why I'm not getting the V6 and sticking with Tivo. Not having the scart out active is going inconvenience a lot of people who want to feed to other devices.
