What are the key benefits with the TiVo Wireless N?
  • Faster speed, especially helpful for multi-room viewing (MRV) transfers
  • Less waiting for downloads of HD movies and TV shows onto your Premiere
  • Extended range: The adapter can operate in both 2.4 and 5 GHz, popular wireless network bands
  • Wi-fi Protected Setup and PC configuration available
  • By plugging a second TiVo Wireless N Adapter into your router (available at a discount when purchased as a Double Pack), an N-speed bridge is created, giving the user N-speed downloads even when using a G- or B-speed router. Your TiVo will then be able to download HD movies and TV shows at N speeds.
What makes N better than G?

Our N adapter provides increased speed and improved range over G adapters. The TiVo N adapter uses the 5 GHz band, which has less interference then the 2.4 GHz band, allowing for speedier downloads and greater range.

What is the TiVo Wireless N Adapter Double Pack? Why would someone need a Double Pack?
TiVo Premiere users who want to move their entertainment content across their home network at n speeds, can do so even if they only have a slower B- or G-speed router. How? By plugging one TiVo Wireless N Adapter into their Premiere and another into their legacy B- or G-speed router, they can create an N-speed bridge. This N-speed bridge enables users to download HD entertainment and move it through their home network at much faster speeds and with great efficiency.

How easy is it to set-up?
  • Setup is as easy as a push of a button, the TiVo Wireless N utilizes Wi-fi Protected Setup. You can also set it up using a PC.
  • Even if you don't own an N-speed router, you can still use your G- or B-speed router to get N-speed downloads. It’s easy. Just plug a second TiVo Wireless N Adapter into your router and create an N-speed bridge. Your TiVo will then be able to download HD movies and TV shows at N speeds.
