You can connect any device to a network that supports IPv4 or 5 5 via Ethernet or WiFi. The box consists of four LEDs; Their color and display ( Solid, flashing or fluttering) States can tell you all kinds of things about your network status. There is also a built-in network box In order to prevent online intrusion, in the gigabit firewall. Google Fiber TV is an optional service. You will also get a storage box and a Google Fiber optic TV box if you choose TV. The storage box is a 7. 5 by 8 by 1. 7 inch (19 by 20 by 4. 3 centimeter)DVR ( Digital video recorder Used to save programs or movies to watch later.

In most cases, this DVR is connected to your TV box via coaxial cable lines via coaxial Union multimedia (MoCA) The network standard, although it may be connected via Ethernet in some cases. This coaxial cable can exist both from previous cable services and can be newly installed by Google during Google Fiber installation. The TV box is a set- Measure the top box of 6. 8 by 5. 3 by 1. 3 inches (17. 3 by 13. 5 by 3. 3 centimeters). You need one for every video you want to connect to Google Fiber TV. Google includes one, but you can order something extra. The TV box is connected to the coaxial cable from the wall through the coaxial port on the back of the box. This connects it to the storage box. The back of the box also includes an Ethernet port for connecting devices such as consoles, although connecting to the TV box allows only 100 Mbps. In rare cases, the box can also be connected to a fiber optic network using an Ethernet port. Other ports on the back include S/PDIF, AV out, HDMI in ( Not currently supported) And power connectors. An infrared (IR)extender port ( If you need to connect the IR Extender so that the remote control signal can reach the box) The front of the TV box has an infrared receiver and LED status light and a USB port that is not currently supported.

The standard remote control can be used in IR or Bluetooth mode. With IR, you can set it to control the TV box and the TV set. You can view, configure and manage these devices from my fiber account on the web.
