-- wireless tranfer for the novice (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182568)

If you want your TiVos to use your broadband connection, you have to get a router. From the sounds of your setup, you’ll need a wireless router. The router is what splits the connection to multiple users of the connection (1 PC and 2 TiVos in your case whether wired or wireless).

You’ll also need wireless adapters. I currently have 2 wireless adapters, and the speeds are not impressive. I record mostly on medium, so it takes about 1.5 hours to transfer a 30 minute show. If you want real time speeds for transfers, you really need at least 1 connection to be wired. I get about a 60% signal on both wireless adapters.

You can find wireless adapters and info about a wireless router at:


TiVo Brand Series 2 : TCD140060 : 160 hours
Toshiba Series 2 : SD-H400 : 80 hours
