Hi all,

I seriously can't find this basic information anywhere and don't understand.

Simply put, how do I connect my tivo to my pc?

I have both an ethernet cable and a crossover cable. I thought it would be as simple as plugging one of these into my tivo directly into my pc. Presently I update my tivo by just plugging it directly into the modem with an ethernet cable.

The HNP cannot pick up my tivo.

Do I need a router? I don't really want to do this wirelessly.

If I need a router, what sort do I need? What features must it have. I had a quick look at the routers on gamedude.com.au and there's so many different types.

Thanks in advance.
