    Do you mean if and when they release a Series 5? Or would you expect TiVo to implement a running change to start using MoCA 2.0 chips in Series 4 (XL4) production? Have they been known to do running changes? And are production lines still running for the XL4? I thought they might be just shipping from a large initial production run.

    In the S5 or Six tuner box. They probably wouldn't change an existing box. It would be in a new model.

    I was messing around today and setup both my Elites using MoCA. I had needed to update my DLink MoCA adpaters to the newer firmware for awhile which made them MoCA 1.1 compliant instead of the 1.0 compliance they had initially. So I figured I might as well mess around with the MoCA for now.

    Just looking at the transfer speed history it seems to be the same as when connected to my gigabit Ethernet Backbone. The only issue with my setup this way is that I can only get a 100Mb/s connection to my TiVo Desktop PC since the Dlink MoCA adapters only have a 100Mb/s Ethernet port. So speeds when transferring from multiple TiVos to TiVo desktop would be much slower. But fortunately I'm not using TiVo Desktop very much any more so it's not really an issue.

    So I'll leave it connected like this for awhile and maybe leave it or switch back to the GigE ports on my Elites. (On my main Elite I used the ethernet port to connect a two tuner Premiere to the network. That seems to work very well too. Same speeds)
