My Roamio should be here in a day or two. I'm wondering if the is an method to the madness in regard to the order of setting everything up.
I'll have a Roamio plus, cable card, tuning adapter, 3 mini's, moca and a network connection. I have dual coax running to each location I want the Roamio and the 3 mini's.
Coax cabling plan using 3 2050Mhz splitters:
Coax input --> POE filter --> 3 way splitter
1. --> terminates at Cable Modem
2. --> terminates at 2 way splitter
in AV cabinet:
2.1 -----> Roamio
2.2 -----> Tuning adapter
3. --> terminates to 4 way splitter
3.1 -----> terminates to mini in Study
3.2 -----> terminates to mini in Guest BD
3.3 -----> terminates to mini in Master BD
3.4 -----> unused/capped
I'm assuming that I should first connect the Roamio to cable and network and set up the networking component. Then maybe I install the cable card next and get that authorized. Then maybe I hook up the tuning adapter and verify I get all subscribed channels. Then I turn on moca on Roamio. Lastly I set up each mini and turn moca on for each (after connecting coax).
This is a very broad overview of what I've pieced together from reading through the forums, so any corrections or additional details for any step would be helpful.
