XG1-a TV box and WiFi pod

I just got an XG1 TV box. It came with a coaxial cable and the instructions say to use that to hook up to the router. However, the router is not close to the TV, so I was instructed to use an XFi pod, which has an ethernet hookup, but no coax hook up. So, I'm trying to hook up the TV box to the Xfi pd using an ethernet cable. I get the welcome message, but then there's an error message saying something went wrong. Will this ethernet connection just not work? Thanks.

I’m not sure what instructions you received but you don’t need the Internet to get that box going at all just a live coax signal

The problem is, there is nothing at all to plug into close to the TV. That's why I was relying on the XFi pod as the remote cable TV source, then was going to hard wire the TV box to the pod with the ethernet cable.

Sorry, you need a live coax not Ethernet.
