MoCa should only be used if you don't have access to Ethernet. The priority of network types for TiVo streaming should be Ethernet > MoCa > Wifi. If you have Ethernet available then it's by far the best option and you should use it.
so here's my question. Right now my cable goes into my main TV viewing area and is where my Tivo Roamio Plus will be.
Currently my downstairs TiVo gets internet via a powerline adapter (this will be replaced by a Mini).
Is my best bet to leave it as is? Or can I replace the powerline adapter with MOCA (ethernet into the Roamio Plus, Moca out to the downstairs Mini)? Obviously Moca would be nice as I wouldn't have to worry about using powerline anymore, and any additional TVs could be easily added in the future with a mini
