Tivo Store's MOCA Networking Adapter Model

The Tivo Store does not give a model for the MOCA networking adapters they sell. I found this on amazon, but it is 30 dollars more. I figure Tivo may be selling an older model of the actiontec adapter. Does anyone know?

http://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Ethe..._cd_ql_qh_dp_t

Thanks,
Filovirus

I believe the one TiVo is selling is an older model no longer for sale by Actiontec (ECB2200):

I think main difference is it doesn't have password protect feature, but other than that I think has very similar feature set and should be plenty good enough for your needs.

This is the model that I received from Tivo a few months ago: http://www.actiontec.com/251.html

What password protect feature are you referring to, encryption? The model Tivo sells supports that, you have to download the manual config utility from ActionTec to configure though.

The exact model number and detail that Tivo offer's is (at least per the ones I recieved) ECB2500C H/w 3A F/W 1.10.1.23

With the model referenced in the Amazon listing is the same as Tivo's with the only difference is the K0 suffix which one is retail package while the other is OEM distribution which means you get a nice pretty printed box with the Amazon item while the one you receive from Tivo is brown box. Both require the downloaded utility if you wish to any type of config other than automatic which is the default for both.

Sounds like a no brainer then to order from TiVo instead even though shipping may be extra.

With Amazon you also get a MoCA compatible two way cable splitter and a short coax cable (if that matters).
