MoCA Filter a MUST
I posted this in some of the other forums where users were having v87 connection issues with Bolt/Roamio to Mini. I hope it helps someone else save hours of troubleshooting:
Add me to the list of folks (chumps maybe?) that didn't think (or know) that I needed a MoCA PoE filter. After spending hours of troubleshooting, and then about $7.00 on Amazon for a MoCA filter, my TiVo Mini issues disappeared. I have a 1TB TiVo BOLT and a v2 Mini. The first night I set up the Mini I watched an entire hockey game in high def with no issue. After that, it never worked again. Weather? Network gods? I can't explain it but what I can say is that the MoCA filter worked in seconds.
For background, I am very proficient at home AV, computer networking, WiFi, etc. In addition, before I had Bolt/Mini, I had DirecTV with whole home DVR MoCA service working perfectly at all the same locations without a MoCA PoE filter. But when I moved to TiVo Bolt/Mini, nothing worked. Static IP addresses, removing splitters, simplifying the config, MoCA channels, etc. $7.00 MoCA filter worked immediately. What can I say? Get one.
Issues I had: v87 errors on Mini - would connect for maybe 5 seconds and then disconnect with V87 error. Could establish a network connection and view my recorded shows but could not stream.
