V6 connecting to v6

Hi there I have a v6 box in my living room and another one upstairs in my bedroom, I can watch recorded programs from the living room box upstairs but can not watch my recordings from upstairs in the living room. It keeps saying it can not connect to the box but surely the 2 boxes are connected already as it works in reverse.

Both boxes must be connected to the hub, and it would be good if you an get one (ideally both) conected with an Ethernet cable.

Re: V6 connecting to v6

What about then they're connected by Ethernet via Powerline adapters?

Try the adapters, but if one V6 is near the hub always use an Ethernet cable.

Re: V6 connecting to v6

Ath the hub all 4 ports are used. 1 for a TV, 1 for a blu-ray player, 1 for a V6 and 3 that goes off to a Powerline adapter. My other V6 when it arrives will plug into a Powerline adapter in another room

Re: V6 connecting to v6

If you need more than four LAN ports in the living room connect your devices to an unmanaged network switch* and the switch to the hub.

*See my sig for an example of such a switch
