    I started having this issue (Minis lost the DVR) last week, but it has gotten really bad in the past 24 hours. I selected the host DVR, per instructions above, and everything seems happy again.

    I've noticed alot of other little network "glitches" in the past month. Nothing in my physical network has changed, so it is 100% Tivo problems.

    I just cut the cord, going from a Dish Hopper and Mini setup to a OTA Tivo and Tivo Mini. Using the same exact networking setup, I never had any issues with the Dish setup. Now my mini disconnects at least once a day. Simple fix is to go back through settings -> network -> and tell it to re-DCHP, and it works. This is obviously a software issue. Tivo needs to address this, pretty frustrating.

    Why not do the below and set them all to static IPs?

    I had a very similar issue. I use MoCa The root cause was my coax splitters used. I had 1,000 MHz (1 Ghz) splitters as installed by the cable company. In doing research I found MoCa runs at higher frequencies than that. MoCa 1.1 range is 500-1500 MHz and MoCa 2.0 in the 500-1650 MHz range. This is obviously above the rating of my coax splitters. To remedy I purchased replacement splitters on Amazon rated for 5-2400 MHz. Cost ranges from $6-$10. I have had zero connectivity issues since.

    (The coax splitters were all located in my basement near the primary cable drop coming into my house)

    MOCA 1.1 (as used in TiVos and most other equipment) uses the MOCA "D band" which runs from 1.15 GHz to 1.5 GHz (MOCA 2.0 extends that to 1.675 GHz) and was designed to have enough power to work through 1GHz splitters. You probably had a bad splitter and replacing it with a new 1 GHz splitter would have worked just as well.
