    I bought an "hdmi with ethernet" cable from Amazon. AmazonBasics. My Bravia tv is wirelessly connected. The hope, as suggested by Amazon, was that my Tivo Premiere could connect to the internet via the hdmi cable, via the tv's wireless.

    But alas, it's not connecting.

    Has anyone else tried something like this?

    AFAIK, the TiVo doesn't have the hardware (HDMI 1.4) to support that.

    Thanks. Yeah, I guess it doesn't support hdmi 1.4... I was kind of hoping the tv itself would double as the wifi adapter. It was a $9 gamble.
