    I have Moca set up using a Roamio and I have an elite on the Moca network in another room. Can I use the ethernet port on the elite to provide wired internet in that room? I thought that it was supposed to do that, but so far, I'm not having any luck. Thanks

    I do not believe that is possible and I've never read anything saying it is. In order for it to do that it would have to function as an Ethernet bridge.

    Not only can you, but it works just fine, I have that as the setup in my living room, MoCA comes in to the Premiere XL, it acts as a bridge via its ethernet port and feeds the media center switch. Just set it for MoCA +Ethernet.

    Yes this can be done and should be working. What are you connecting to the Elite?

    What kind of speed do you get over the bridge? I'm not getting any better than my wireless.

    I can only get it to work sporadically; to be clear, I'm not using the ethernet port on the Roamio (which is where the Moca network is initiated) but rather on an elite in another room. I'm connecting my computer directly to the port with an ethernet cable. It shows as having a connection to the internet, but web pages take forever to load and frequently don't. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. thanks

    Have you tried using a different (new) coax cable between the TiVo?

    If you're trying to connect to your local network from the Elite, but you're not using the Ethernet port on the Roamio, where is the MoCA sub-network being bridged to your Ethernet LAN (router, etc)? You may be able to transfer video between two MoCA-capable TiVo units on an isolated MoCA hookup, but if you want it to connect to the rest of your LAN, you have to use the bridging feature somewhere to cross-connect Ethernet to MoCA.

    Sorry, I misspoke. I am using the ethernet port on my Roamio to access my LAN, but am not having any luck using the ethernet port on my Elite as an additional access port to the LAN. Thanks

    I haven't, but the Elite itself accesses the internet (Netflix and Hulu Plus) with no problem, so I thought the coaxial connection should be good.

    It does indeed work. Turns out my computer did not have DHCP enabled for the local network. Thanks
