This is actually why I was so surprised they included wifi in the Roamio basic but not MoCa. Of course if people don't have Ethernet they're going to try using wifi next.
My Roamio Basic allowed me to try streaming a show over WiFi from my old hard wired Premiere, but the network was too slow to make it really useable. I was able to transfer about 12 hours of OTA shows to it over WiFi, but it took something like 20 hours to do this, so I got a switch and hard wired the Roamio for the remaining transfers I want to do.
So, WiFi was an option for me, just not one that worked well enough to be useful without at least some more troubleshooting to see if I could get a better signal for faster transfer.
I have Ethernet in all the locations I have TiVo's, so fortunately, I wont' have to depend on wireless.
