Approximate distance for Mini to work properly?

I haven't bought the Mini yet, but want to install it about 45-50 feet away from my Roamio.....will the Mini work at this distance?

Yes. You are putting it on the same Ethernet/moca network which has it's own requirements way over 50ft. Ethernet can go up to 300ft IIRC without needing a repeater (hub/switch).

That's fine, moca has an operating distance of 300 feet.

Just to be clear it's 300 wire feet. Depending on how your house is wired the wire feet between the devices could be a LOT more then their physical distance. I own a townhouse that my Mom lives in and just had to go fix her cable the other day. The drop going to the living room comes into the garage, snakes through the walls, under the house and then all the way to the other side of the unit. The one going to her bedroom, which is right above the living room on the second floor, goes up the wall, all the way around the outside of the building to the front, then into the bedroom. In wire feet I'm sure the run around the outside of the building is more then 300', so in her case MoCa didn't work. I bought her a pair of HomePlug adapters instead. (uses power lines for networking)
