Hi, I have 2 V6 boxes both working just fine from a TV perspective, but I'm not able to connect to the other V6 box to get a list of recordings to watch, its the same from both boxes
I am NOT using the V6 box as the router, its in Modem mode and I have a separate Netgear wifi router with the house fully cabled in cat5e, using Netgear switch's to create the network, to which the V6 boxes are plugged into.
Both are on the same 192.168.0.0 /24 network and have been assigned valid IP addresses, gateway and DNS, but cannot be 'pinged', but this is probably because they are blocked to ICMP messages.
From the Virgin media http://manage-virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/ webpage I can see both boxes and get info on the series link recordings from both boxes. But the copy from one box appears to work but it does not copy, not sure if that is related, but that's not such an issue.
The connection did work, but not reliably when I had a V6 and a Tivo box, but since the Tivo was replaced with a V6, (as it went faulty) it just does not connect.
We've gone from a V6 and TiVo setup, where we could watch each box's recordings on the other without any issues, to two V6 boxes, but this feature does not work consistently between the two V6 boxes.
It hasn't worked for a week or two, then today I noticed the upstairs V6 was showing on the downstairs one, so I thought I would try it again and instead of the usual error, it actually worked this time. No changes have been made to the boxes or home network.
Yes the V6 boxes work just fine for live TV, recordings and play back and watching on demand, its just the connection to the other V6 box that fails when trying to view recordings on on the other box, and its the same from both V6 boxes.
Like the post above it just started working but slightly different, only from the lounge to the kitchen but not from the kitchen to the lounge! Perhaps in another 2 weeks that will start working too! seems a rather flaky protocol...
I tried powering down both my V6 boxes for a while when I discovered this issue between them and it made no difference for me. Worth a go though, as you never know.
One thing that worth's checking on both boxes is Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Network Remote Control. The description doesn't say to enable it to allow TiVo boxes to communicate with each other, but the way it reads, I though it was worth enabling just in case. However, despite this being disabled on one of the boxes when I was fault finding my issue, it didn't fix it after I enabled it.
