    Is this configuration possible? Thinking of grabbing two Mini's, in one of the rooms I have Cable, but no ethernet, and in the other I have ethernet and no cable.

    Yes, provided everything ends up on the same IP subnet.

    One thing to note is that the basic Roamio does not have MoCa built in. You don't say which TiVo you plan to pair the Minis to, but if it's a basic Roamio then you'll need a MoCa adapter somewhere on your network for the MoCa Mini to work. If you have a 4 tuner Premiere or a 6 tuner Roamio then those have MoCa built in and your setup will work fine provided the TiVo is connected to Ethernet. (the TiVo will act as a Ethernet/MoCa bridge)

    I'll be getting a Roamio Pro. Glad to hear that this setup will work. I don't plan on splitting up my subnet, or anything complex like that.

    Now I just have to wait for the Roamio Pro to ship.

    I've got two Minis and a Pro on MoCa and one mini on ethernet -- no issues!

    You'll need a moca bridge in a room with both ethernet AND cable.

    While the plus and pro have included bridges, they need access to an Ethernet cable to actually bridge the connection.
