    Are you using splitters that are rated to support MoCA? If you use the ordinary 'crappy' splitter supplied by the cable company it may be attenuating the MoCA signal which rides above 1GHz. Any splitter in your setup (attic, etc.) that isn't rated for above 1GHz effectively acts like a low-pass filter and attenuates the MoCA signal.

    MoCA 1.0 uses RF signals in an operating range of 850 to 1500 MHz so in general splitters should support frequencies up to 1500 MHz. I've seen some MoCA splitters on Amazon that go up to 1200 MHz and my experience is these generally work. The new MoCA 2.0 standard uses RF signals from 500 to 1650 MHz.

    Thanks for the input - I've just ordered a Premiere 4 deal which comes with a free MoCA adapter and POE, so I'll see how it works with my current configuration. I am only trying to improve transfers between Tivos - wireless n is pretty slow - many transfers fail before they are finished (a 1 hour HD program can take 3 - 4 hours). So hopefully MoCA will help - but I need to get a few more adapters for the other Tivo HDS first, before I can find out if it works well between them. Hopefully the splitters I have will be good enough, but will wait and see.

    Can someone please tell me what frequency tivos moca works on? Not a range please, the actual frequency.. trying to see if it interferes with my comcast moca box.

    Thanks

    How could they interfere? There can be up to 16 MOCA devices on a frequency.

    Ok, allow me to be a bit more specific...

    If it is moca v2.0, I understand that it can work at or above 500mhz, I'm not sure where TiVo's moca operates at. If it works anywhere between 500-860mhz, that can interfere with digital cable frequencies operating in that range. If a user did not install a PoE filter, that traffic can get back onto the main line, and affect neighbors that also have cable. I doubt that its anywhere below 1ghz, but just curious.

    MOCA generally uses frequencies from 850 to 1525 MHz so you will be fine. The DirecTV flavor of ethernet over coaxial (which they call DECA) would interfere with your digital cable frequencies.
