    Yes, I used NIM100 MoCA adapters with S3 OLED units for years. I still have 1 S3 OLED unit left using 1 today. Any device with an ethernet port works.

    The MOCA adapters will work with ANY Ethernet enabled device. They basically just convert Ethernet to MOCA. In fact you can use one adapter for multiple devices if you connect all the devices to an Ethernet switch and then connect the MOCA adapter to the switch as well. (that's what I've done)

    Just some advice for anyone that buys an Actiontec MoCA adapter, buy some spare power supplies. I have 3 of them and the power supply has failed on 2 of them in a little over a year and a half. It's an oddball 5 volt 3 amp supply and they're somewhat hard to find except from an eBay Chinese supplier.

    Please forgive my ignorance -- for my "regular" Premiere, according to this web page, I would need 2 adapters -- one on the TiVo end, and one on the router end? BTW I have FIOS...

    Since you have Fios, the "router end" already has MoCa built in. Hence you only need one on the "Tivo end".

    Not sure if this is the right place but I will ask anyways.

    I just purchased TIVO Premiere 4, (it has build in MOCA), and I got one Actiontec MOCA adapter. I have Comcast xfinity so I use Cable Modem to get my Ethernet.

    I connected cox to Actiontec (Cox) -> then from Actiontec (Cox) -> (Cox) Cable Modem (CAT5) -> (CAT5) Wireless Router (CAT5) -> Actiontec (MOCA) -> (MOCA) TIVO Premiere 4 (CAT5) -> Sony Home Theatre.

    This works just fine, so in this case TIVO works as a BRIDGE, it gets Internet thorough MOCA and then I used its Ethernet port to run cable to Sony Home Theatre which gets internet through TIVO's Ethernet port.

    I want to get a Wireless Router and run the Ethernet from TIVO Premiere 4 to Wireless Router then setup wireless for the house and connect following device to my router (PS3, Home Theatre, Sony TV).

    My question is will this work?

    If it doesn't work can I use Actiontec Verizon Moca Wireless Router, I would just use a spliter and run MOCA to TIVO and Actiontec Verizon Moca Wireless Router.

    Would that work?

    FYI if both options work, I would probably get a stand alone router since I don't hear to many great things about Actiontec Verizion Wireless Moca Router, but I did hear that latest revisions are much better. Wireless N, dual antenna etc.

    OK I managed to get my answer, which is YES.

    So I will probably get the Actiontec and set it up as my primary router, then in the future I can always use it to get Ethernet from MOCA.

    You do not need another wireless router on the Premiere 4. Since you already have a wireless router connected to the MoCa, you can just connect your PCs/laptops wired/ wireless and be able to transfer to/from the Premiere 4.
