    Grrr, Best Buy is trying to thwart my Christmas TiVo. I placed the pickup in store order after tediously entering all my gift cards, and the order was immediately canceled. Spent 15+ min on the phone with their CS and she says that Amex declined it. Spent another 15+ min on the phone with Amex, and they said they released the funds immediately and that it was BB who reversed the charge.

    Maybe I should just go down to the store and do the transaction there. :mad:

    Thanks for the info. I have looked into Moca just a little bit, but can't figure out if it would really help us. We use 1 tv in our house, and have a second one in a guest room. I'm planning to set up the old TiVo on our guest room tv. I want to be able to download/stream shows onto my iPad. Will regular ol' wi-if serve my needs?

    Also, I do wish I could transfer programs from my old TiVo, but 95% of them have a big red X next to them, indicating they can't be transferred. :mad: Would MoCa help with this?

    After a second cancelled online pickup in store order, I went down in the snowstorm and obtained the Christmas TiVo in person and breezed in and out of the empty Comcast office with a red M-card. :) The 3 TB hard drive should be here tomorrow from Amazon!

    of course it is possible. I can stream flawlessly with my Roamio Basic over wireless N at 5Ghz. I get over 90Mb/s throughput with my Roamio basic whether I use the wired connection or wireless. I can have both my Minis streaming and my Roamio pro streaming concurrently from my Roamio Basic over wireless with no problem.

    Okay, I misspoke. I suppose it is possible, but according to TiVo wifi "does not support streaming between two or more TiVo DVRs" and "is not recommended when used with TiVo Stream or TiVo Mini". It's on the Roamio installation page.
