Could someone from VM contact to arrange for a splitter kit to be sent out to me.
I have ordered an upgrade to a V6 box but recently had a new router sent out so it is just the V6 box I will be getting and the feedback I have had is that if it is only the V6 box then no splitter will come with it??
There was no facility to order one online and phoning is a nightmare.
My configuration is the same as yours. Broadband upstairs, TV downstairs, WiFi to TV box, no problem.
Your desire to move the broadband downstairs beside the TV box is reasonable but may introduce issues as well.
1. Changing the position of your broadband router could change the WiFi distribution through your home;
2. Introduction of a splitter downstairs will change the signal strength and may put them out of spec and cause issues. Of course, you will need to terminate the upstairs co-ax point if nothing is connected.
In your position, I would forget a splitter and use WiFi to achieve the internet connection for the V6.
