Thanks for your answers, best regards Roman M.
Theoretically - yes. You will need 2 network adapters in your PC (if you will need to keep it online, or you have to unplug router cable, reconfigure network settings, plug x-over cable) and use x-over cable to connect TVIX with preconfigured static IP to PC.
Also you need a bit more than basic network infrastructure knowledge.
My recommendation is: look for router with more than 1 lan port or wireless.
