Roamio Plus, Mini, and MoCa
Hey all --- was a loyal Tivo user ten years ago, but left when I went HDTV. Defended Comcast's service and hardware for years online, finally gave up on the hardware and got my Roamio Plus and three Minis last night.
Roamio Plus box is in my family room, directly above my wired/wireless router in my LL. Tried to connect via Moca to the internet with no luck, wireless worked fine. Setup was smooth, put the first Mini in my BR, connected the coax and got nada for over an hour. No connection.
Thought I might be investing in some powerline adapters, but now think I may just need to wait and see if the Mini eventually sees the Roamio? FYI, had a Comcast Multi-room in the fam room previously, it was connected to the internet and it connected to a satellite box in my BR just fine. Also --- have a guestroom with no coax connection, possible to use powerline ethernet in that room and MoCa everywhere else? Roamio seems to only do one type of connection at a time...
Wait to see if the MoCa connection in my BR takes? Sorry if this has already been talked to death, I've looked and not quite seen this scenario, my knowledge of networking is at least ten years out of date.
