I keep seeing all the talk of MoCA networking and TiVo boxes. I'm somewhat interested but not entirely clear on details. Should I or shouldn't I? And what will it cost if I do?
I have a recently purchased Premiere XL. It's located very near my living room TV set and incoming cable but no Ethernet is feasible. It's currently using a TiVo Wireless-N adapter that was free with the purchase package.
I have a TiVo HD for the wife's use in the bedroom. Obviously, streaming to/from it isn't going to happen, but it would be nice if we could transfer programs faster than is currently possible with its TiVo Wireless-G adapter. More than anything else, that would help with our granddaughter who often wants to watch "her shows" without having to go to only one TiVo.
Upstairs is another cable entry into the house which connects to our cable modem. I currently have an Apple Time Capsule as my router and may upgrade to a newer model sometime, but I'm in no rush. And there's no interest in TV up there.
So, given that I would have to purchase at least two, maybe three MoCA adapters, possibly get some additional bits of coax here and there, maybe even short Ethernet cables here and there, what benefits exactly would I get from doing this?
And assuming that the benefits are worth the cost and effort, where can I get easy to understand specifics on what I'd need at each spot?
Thanks for any advice.
