    Here is my set up.

    I have 2 XL4's, one Tivo HD, and 1 Roamio Pro. They all connect to each other, to the network and handle room to room transfers well.

    I just bought a new Roamio from TiVo.com It was delivered on Tuesday. I installed it on Tuesday, activated my new unit on TiVo.com, and paired the cable card on Tuesday. Waiting 24 hours, Wednesday night, I forced a connection on all my units and afterwards I restarted all units. I then went on TiVo.com and used the season pass manager to transfer passes to the new Roamio. (it worked great).

    1 XL4 wired connection (signal strength 100%)
    1 XL4 connected wirelessly (signal strength 82%)
    1 Roamio connected wirelessly (signal strength 77%)
    New Roamio connected wirelessly (signal strength 24%)

    The new Roamio can "see" the other TiVo's in the network under "My Shows", but they are "orange exclamation point" "!"... and gives me a "cant connect c423 error". I called TiVo and they forced a connection to all my units on their end, and said to call back in 30 minutes. I went to sleep.

    10 hours later - still the same problem. Before I call tech support, does anyone have a suggestion on how to resolve this?

    I just checked my wireless signal on the Roamio settings - it is at 24 % (marginal). even though its 3 feet from the router ?? Would that be the cause of the issue?

    Geek Hill,...

    If your router is 3 feet from your Roamio it seems it would be feasible to connect it via Ethernet cable. If you do that your problems will quite likely be gone.

    yea - its a port issue - or lack of available ports...

    but yes, once i used the ethernet cable, she works like a charm...

    Buy a switch, connect a port on the ethernet switch to your existing router, connect other devices to the switch.

    Be careful and make sure it isn't a "green" switch. If it has 'green' in the product name or on the packaging or has any type of 'eco' wording, earth icon, or green leaf symbol you might want to pick a different model to avoid any potential issues.

    Instead of buying switches for your XL4 units you could enable moca and connect with your existing coax connection.

    I am interested in how you manage to connect and utilize the Roamio Pro on an ATT U-verse system. TiVo's FAQ for the Roamio indicate that there is "no product compatibility"

    The poster might be utilizing uverse for internet access instead of both internet / TV.
