    I am inheriting a TiVo premier with lifetime service. I already have a Bolt with lifetime service in my living room and it is connected to an actual cable so that I can watch and record live tv. I want to connect the TiVo premier to my bedroom tv, but I don’t have an actual cable cord available in my bedroom to connect the TiVo to. Can I connect the premier wirelessly? Or do I have to have an actual cable?

    There are various ways to connect the Premiere without a cable. See my post about a Mini: Tivo Mini Wifi Adapter

    For it to Record, it'll need at least an Antenna, assuming it's a 2 Tuner.

    Otherwise, you could connect with WiFi to 'stream' recordings from the Bolt.

    what about if the OP wants live TV on the Premiere?

    It's not pretty, but the method used by Online comes to mind. Start a recording on the Bolt of the channel, then watch the recording on the Premiere. Or buy a Mini.

    Could probably have coax run to the bedroom for what it would cost to buy a new mini plus the wifi adapter.
