Can you use HD virgin box for playing PS3 online


Standard Member
on the back of the box there is an ehternet port, can i tap of this or is it meant for something else.

otherwise i will use a 10m cable and hardwire connect it.

any help will be appreciated

No, I believe the cable modem built into the V+ box is pretty slow (1mbps?) so Virgin don't actually use it for broadband but supply you with a cable modem instead. You will need to connect your PS3 to the modem (or a router atached to the modem - wired or wireless).

but top tip: the usb port is powered, so you can charge your pad from it!! woot!!
