When you stream shows between two or more TiVo Premiere series DVRs (Multi-Room Streaming), you need a fast network connection. Otherwise, your shows might pause or skip while streaming, or they might not stream at all.
The same is true if you want to stream or transfer shows to your mobile devices using the TiVo® Stream. The Stream lets you stream shows recorded on your Premiere series DVR to your mobile devices when you’re at home, or transfer shows to your devices to take with you.
The only way to ensure a fast enough network connection for streaming is to use a wired Ethernet or MoCA connection. Many people don’t have a wired Ethernet connection available to the DVR, so MoCA is a great alternative.
Note: Wi-Fi and Powerline (also called HomePlug® ) networking are not sufficient for streaming shows reliably.
MoCA, on the other hand, provides 170 Mbit/s Net TCP throughput!
