Why does the TIVO 6 box have to be connected to the hub either via an ethernet cable or wireless?

...because V6 uses your broadband for EPG updates and apps such as BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, ...
Thank you Ernie_C,
At present, my TIVO 6 and hub are connected via WiFi. Would there be any benefit to hardwire the 2 together. They are in different rooms and to run a cat 5 cable would be difficult but not impossible?
If everything is working OK on wifi, there's no real need to make a direct connection.
You can see the speed of the wifi connection and a percentage idea of the quality by navigating to:
Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Network > View Network Status
This will also show which SSID you are connected to and which wifi band (assuming you are not a Hub 3.0 user with a single SSID).
