    Is that hybrid Moca to Ethernet? Would be interesting for someone to test a pure MOCA connection with the elite....

    check amazon. I got a pair of brand new netgear moca adapters for $79. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001N85NMI/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

    I have a later model actiontec (I dont think it's a g- maybe e or f)- and on the diagnostic screens it seems to indicated that I'm getting 200+ up and down stream to the elite. (not at home but off the top of my head it was like 213 one way and 230 the other)

    I was under the impression that the ethernet is not the weak link in tivo I/O and you can't even get 100 out of a tivo no matter the speed of the connection?

    That's the PHY rate. The theoretical max for that is 270Mbps. The MAC rate is the limiting factor (~100Mbps in MoCA 1.0 and 175Mbps in MoCA 1.1).

    since i clearly dont know- LOL. what is the difference?

    Is PHY the actual connection but the MAC limits it to keep from saturating the line?

    For what it's worth, I tried this with the TiVo Preview box, and unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be capable of extending the network through the Ethernet port. I tried connecting my Apple TV to the Preview this way, and while it shows up as a TCP/IP connection, it refuses to pull an IP address.

    The regular 2-tuner Premiere doesn't have the built-in MoCA adapter.

    Oops! I misread as "Premiere". I know nothing about the Preview. Sorry.

    The Preview box is supplied by cable operators. It has no hard drive and only one tuner.

    I would not have expected this to work on the Preview since we have no documentation to state so. We do however have documentation stating it will work on the Elite
