I just moved to a property where the living room is nowhere near the hub, and am unable to get cable to my V6 box.
Would it be possible for me to connect my old Tivo box to the cable connection point, then connect it to my V6 box via Powerline and access saved shows from the Tivo? I don’t watch much linear tv, so if I could just record shows on the TiVo and pick them up on the V6, I think I’d be fine.
The Tivo boxes have their own build-in modem, and so it receives an internet connection via the coax cable. Without connection to the coax cable, it is unable to receive any sort of TV or broadband signal.
The V6 boxes on the other hand do not have this build-in modem feature and so they're required to be connected to your home router via WiFi or Ethernet cable in order to receive an internet connection. TV signals are still received through the coax cable.
so, returning to my initial question - if I connect the old TiVo box to the coax and Ethernet of my hub, and my V6 box to Powerline but not the coax, will I be able to access programmes recorded on my TiVo, on demand services and Netflix on the V6?
