    my Roamio is connected via its built in wireless to my N home network and shows a 70% signal strength and is updating normally each day. My old Quad premiere elite tivo I call "Quad Elite" is connected to my home network via the wireless N tivo branded ethernet adapter.
    In "my shows" on the Quad Elite at the bottom of the list I can see my Roamio and delete programs remotely. lately however on my Roamio, in my shows at the bottom it has an exclamation point to the left of the "Quad Elite" with a message that the "Quad elite cannot be found". it used to be there, just not the past few days. I have rebooted both tivos several times, and made sure on the website under my dvr preferences that "video sharing" and "allow video downloads" are both checked

    any thoughts before I call tech support?

    I have the same problem my other TiVo (HD) is there with an explanation point. If I try to access it, I get a C423 error. TiVo support couldn't help me.

    Go ethernet or MOCA. Customer support will just tell you that they don't support wireless for MRV or MRS.

    I had a similar issue connecting to my Premiere. I forced the Premiere to connect to TiVo so it could get my latest account information since I added a Roamio. I'm now happily transferring my shows to my new Roamio.

    the really dumb thing is that the Premiere elite can see the Roamio, but the Roamio cannot see the Premiere. And the "Roamio does not support wireless" is absurd, I have been transferring large video files to my premieres for years using wireless N adapters

    my roamio sees my elite and even sees the shows. if i try to watch a show on my roamio that is hosted by the elite it gives me the "can't watch now" network connection BS.

    both are connected to my network via N wireless.

    anybody have a "fix" for this issue?
