    I use MoCA, powerline AND RJ45 in the house.
    Basement with HDHomerun Prime, WHS2011 and FiOS router are GB RJ45 that also plugs into the PNA to feed the house.
    Living room is fed off of MoCA from the Roamio to a GB Ethernet switch and wireless AP
    Bedroom Mini is fed via a PNA
    Office PC is fed off a PNA

    It works surprisingly well and is quite stable

    When can I move in? :D

    Kidding, it's already cold enough down here without moving any farther north.

    Systems admin for my day job, so I do try and be as open as possible to creative solutions in the house. I just moved in this fall and wanted to see how I could have the most flexibility without having to run RJ45 or coax up the the 2nd floor that had neither available, PNA surprised me with how well it worked.

    I have 3 powerline adapters, 2 are the same and 1 of another but I am in the va hospice unit but I am willing to donate to someone who wants them for shipping. I think I still have them, but I have to wait until my brother comes in on the 29th so I can be taken home to get things.

    Since I have been on this forum over 10 years and have gotten alot from it I want to give them to another member rather than goodwill so email me if interested.

    I live in SSF, CA.

    Hooray! MOCA now works in the kitchen! I've been having to restart pyTiVo (video transferring software) quite often because of the flaky kitchen connection (often also having to force TiVo to connect with internet, sometimes requiring a reboot to get it to do it), and my wife has often gotten frustrated because this happens when I'm at work and can't help her. I'm hoping with MOCA, this problem will be solved now. :cool:

    (Note: my wife is unsavvy with computers, and it's hard for me to train her in how to do the types of fiddling I've been doing to keep pyTiVo running for her, so she depends on me to do it all. I'm hoping that MOCA will now present itself as a timesaver for me.)
