Power Line Adapter to Connect Mini?

I just bought a Roamio Plus and a Mini. The Plus is on the first floor in the family room, about 20 feet from my office where my Mac with Comcast modem and Apple modem live. The Mini is in the basement, about 75 feet away, and was to supply video to the home theater.

I cannot easily hardwire from my router to the Roamio Plus. I'm not sure I want to move the modem and router into a tight space behind the TV & Plus.

I have a Rocketfish Power Line Adapter I was using with Comcast's X1 cable box. (The X1 had so many problems so I'm trying Tivo). The PLA worked well with Comcast's main DVR and second-room box. But I cannot get a strong and continuous signal so the Mini will work properly.

Tivo says they do not support PLA connections and suggested I come here for help. Does anyone know if this can be done? And how?

I'd appreciate any help. I really don't want to return the Tivo but may have to if I can't get a solid signal in the home theater!

It might be easier to get a MoCA adapter to connect to your router, and then use the built-in MoCA network on the Roamio and the Plus instead.
