    I read through some old threads, but none seemed to address my issue.

    I just got a new Premier 4. I connected the MOCA ECB to my network and cable modem per Tivo's guide at http://www.tivo.com/mytivo/howto/moca.html?WT.z_links=moca_vanity. I get no COAX light.

    I did some checking, and changed the ECB installation so it was split off the wall jack and not in line between the jack and modem. Still no COAX light.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is there something on the Tivo I need to activate? It was working on my wireless with a G adapter, and I removed the G adapter, no go.

    Your second try was wrong. Coax should be wall jack to Moca adapter to modem. Then ethernet cable from Moca adapter to your router as well as ethernet cable from your modem to the router.

    The location on the coax of the MoCA adapter and cable modem make no difference at all. They don't talk to each other over coax. The MoCA adapter and the TiVo need to be on coax, with no amplified splitters in between them. The coax light on the adapter will light up when it talks to the TiVo. The ethernet port on the MoCA adapter needs to plug into your network, either on the cable modem or your router, or an ethernet switch/hub that is connected to your cable modem or router.

    So I've got it wired up right, just not working.

    We just moved into this house last year, I wonder if there's an amplified splitter somewhere. Any way to figure that out?

    Did you go into your Tivo settings and set that up? I can't remember exactly what the menu there is, but it might be an issue.

    Is there any way you can temporarily plug a coax line directly from the MoCA adapter to your TiVo? That way you can rule out the MoCA adapter being bad, by seeing if the MoCA link comes up. I did that in my setup to make sure my MoCA adapters were good, and later found an amplified splitter in the wall behind the living room TV.

    I don't see anything but wireless settings or ethernet.

    Just to be clear, you have a 4-tuner Premiere, right?

    got it figured out. the Moca menus don't show if a wireless adapter is connected.
