Wireless AND Ethernet?

Does anyone know if I can use both Ethernet (for faster transfers to/from other TiVos, guide data, etc.) and wireless (for iOS streaming?)

So far it appears that I have to choose one or the other on my Roamio Plus and can't get both to work at the same time. I really want the best of both worlds, especially once I add my TiVo Mini, which will be on Cat 5 since I don't have coax running to the room where the Mini will be going.

Anyone address this issue yet? Thanks.

The streaming to your iOS devices is already wireless, no?

The Romaio can not act as a wifi access point if that's what you're getting at.

No, not looking to use it as a bridge, just ethernet for the speed and TiVo Mino and wireless for iOS streaming.

You don't need wireless for iOS streaming.

Your iOS device is already connected to your router or access point, and your TiVo is connected to that same router/access point via Ethernet. That's as good as it gets. The only way it could work any better is if you could connect the iOS device directly to the TiVo via wifi and that's not currently possible. (that's what I meant by turning your TiVo into an access point)
