    I just ordered a premiere 4 XL. To set up the network connection, can I just plug the coaxial cable from the wall into the DVR, or do I still need to get an adapter?

    thanks --

    If your house/network is enabled for moca already, then that's all you need to do.

    If it's not, you'll need to install a moca adapter to your cable modem and router. ($50 on Tivo's site.) Unless you have FiOS TV, which has moca built into their router.

    thanks - quick follow up question. If I buy the adapter and set up a Moca network, can I connect a xbox 360 directly to the ethernet jack on the tivo premier 4, or do I need to get another adapter?

    Yep, you should be able to daisy chain your Xbox off of the Premiere 4/XL4's ethernet port.

    Are you serious! Theoretically, I am going to try the same thing with my Blu-Ray player! I hope it works! That would be awesome!

    Yep, works fine. (I'm doing it right now) The Elite/4/XL4 has a built in MoCa bridge. So you can connect a switch/hub to the Ethernet port on the TiVo, connect as many Ethernet enabled devices as you want to it, and they will all be able to access the MoCa network. (I'm using a 8 port switch that's full and all the connected devices work fine)
