    My mistake on that the SNR's are hovering around 39 not 30

    That's good. I read some of your posts and you indicate that you have no issue with the Roamio just with the minis. I can not help you with this as I do not have any minis just two Premiere 4's that are connected to my network by a wired connection.
    I did read somewhere that noise can effect devices using a Moca connection and cause the issues you are having.
    Can you try using a wired connection to at least one of the minis even if you have to set it up in the same room as the Roamio?
    TiVo told me when I bought my Premiere 4's this summer that they prefer a wired connection as this is the best set up.

    This is true, no problems on the Roamio at all. I think I could get ethernet to each one if need be, but was told that moca should be more than enough to stream to the mini's.

    However, I'll give this a shot and see what we get. I didn't want to use eth as not to saturate my normal network with streaming to the mini's.

    As to not hi-jack this thread - I have another thread open in the Mini's forum here: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=512363 - anyone offering advice, please go there.

    I understand that MoCA operates in the 500MHz to 1650MHz range so it is possible that something is interfering with the MoCA signal in your home. Eliminating the MoCA setup and trying one mini with wired Ethernet is the simplest way to go about this. If the issues go away then you can determine that the problem lies with the infrastructure in your home.

    I found this link about TiVo and MoCA during a search. They makes things look real easy but they have no information on how to troubleshoot it when things go wrong.

    Yep, no issues. I'm all Ethernet at the moment with all 7 boxes, since I tested with Ethernet and got 180-200Mbps on transfers, thus decided to stay on Ethernet. The only issue I've had is one day I had an issue with Roamio to Roamio streaming and a Can't Play Now message but no issue since.

    I just did and they all above 200, they go from 205 to 270, I have 1 mini and 2 Roamio +s and one 4 tuner TP. I bridge one Roamio + to the network.

    The mini only has 10/100mbps ethernet, and my moca is claiming 280mbps. I figured that moca would be the better choice here.

    I'm going to try ethernet today to rule out a moca issue though.

    I also realized the the leviton 5way splitter I have (the only splitter in the mix - in from outside to 5way with homeruns to each tv) is only rated at 1000mhz, so I ordered a 2400mhz to replace that as well.

    It's good news to hear that this is not a common problem.

    I'm hoping to win this!

    Yep, I was reading through the posts and about to tell you to check your splitters- that you probably have an old one that is mucking your MOCA....

    But I don't get two recordings from a padded season pass. I pad very few SPs, but the ones I do pad do not create two recordings from it. So I don't see how this is a known problem when it doesn't even occur on the two Roamios I own.

    Yeah, for FiOS I just switched to their Verizon branded 5-1675Mhz splitters. PDI-2WWB-2.0 and PDI-4WWB-2.0 MoCA 2.0 splitters. We don't need MoCA 2.0 for Roamio but figured that I'd go with the standard infrastructure.

    My main FiOS intalled spitter is 1GHz 8-way splitter and the ones I've installed were also 1Ghz. When I was using MoCA they all worked fine with FiOS, my two Minis, and Roamio Pro..

    Yeah, I've had a Roamio Pro + 3 Minis on FiOS using MoCA for over a month now, and I've had none of problems you have had. My setup is different than yours in that I am using an Actontech MoCA adaptor to generate the MoCA network rather than the Roamio itself.

    Hope you get it straightened out......I've been a TiVO user for over 13 years, and this is the TiVO setup and performance I been waiting for. I could not be happier. Well, except for not having folders and the ability to watch Amazon movie rentals on the Minis.....:)

    It's not padded SPs that cause the problem. It's changing/adding padding to individual recordings that are already set to record because you have an SP for them.
