    I don't think some 12-18mbps video streams are going to clog up a gigabit network...

    Ethernet is always better then MoCa. You only need to use MoCa if you don't have access to Ethernet in the room where you want the Mini or the host TiVo.

    Well, I finally upgraded my kids from the basic Comcast boxes to a couple of TiVo Mini boxes. They are both setup on MoCA connections and so far (less than 12 hours) appear to be working just fine.

    In total now, I have 3 Mini's connected to my Basement TiVo Premiere 4 (the 2 new kids boxes plus the Kitchen) and the Mini in my Master Bedroom connected to the Family Room Premiere 4. Hopefully they all work well with no network issues. If anything, the kids will probably sometimes run out of tuners if they have too many recordings, but oh well...they're lucky to have what they have :)

    Get the kids a Roamio Plus for X-mas.

    You can almost always work around tuner limitations with creative scheduling. I got through Sochi and March Madness with 3 roommates in addition to myself all sharing a single XL4. Yeah, the XL4 was running hard during both events, with several stretches of full 4 tuner recording...

    Most of the Sochi stuff was on in the middle of the night tough right?

    Plus the Prime Time blocks where there was often something else going on with one of the other channels, in addition to the normal recording load...

    March Madness would tougher with multiple games on at once. One of the Thursdays or Fridays I had to get really creative with scheduling to get almost all of two games I think.
