Can you please help me set up MOCA at my house

Okay...... here are the details of my situation. Can someone with knowledge please help guide me with this.

The provider for my TV and internet is Verizon FIOS. I have really fast internet service(I believe it is 50/25).

My house has coaxial connection jacks in most of the rooms(single jacks). As best I can tell, this coax infrastructure is in good condition.

My router is a newer product from Verizon. It is the MI424WR rev. I(eye). It does support wireless N, and according to the published documentation, it also does support MOCA natively.

Room A is where my router is. I would prefer NOT to have a Tivo in this room at all, if possible.

Room B is my bedroom. I would like to have a Tivo Roamio pro in this room. I am interested in using the full functionality of this product, including live netflix streaming, live Tivo to tivo streaming, and also slingbox style remote streaming(a new feature that is supposedly coming soon from Tivo).

Room C is our living room. In this room I prefer to have a Tivo premiere(the original model).

Room D is our guest room. I do not want a Tivo in this room, but I would like to put an access point there.

For my budget on this project, I am trying to stay around $300 or less.

Soooooooooo .......... where do I go from here? What equipment do I need to purchase? What is the best way to configure all of this?

Thanks,

TC

I'm surprised noonne helped out! :-/

Should be fairly straightforward:

1. In Room A, setup the router...

2. In room B, attach Roamio to coax connection. Turn on Moca Networking in the options of the Roamio. It should get an IP address, and complete functionality (w/cablecard o'course) should be available to you.

2. In room C, you would need a Moca adapter. Like this one: https://tivo.com/shop/detail/moca Thier shipping is usually way too high tho... shop around! . Attach put the adapter between the Tivo and the wall and attach cat 5 from the adapter to the tivo. Should just "work" at this point, tivo should get an IP address, all functionality should be available.

3. In room D, by access point... if you mean wired: Drop in a second Moca adapter. (You can get a 2-pack for $10 off). If you meant wireless access point, add your device of choice (wap, wireless router) to the adapter, or use a Moca router configured to be an access point.

4. Be aware of the frequency range of any splitter(s) that are in the house's wiring. If the splitters are old or cheap and dont pass through a high enough frequency range, the Moca signal may be attenuated.
