    Heh, looks like we haven't heard back from the OP (@Ismelllikepoop) or @Craig Barnes since each of their pre-Xmas "I'll give it a try" posts.

    I asked Frontier if they could ship me a G1100 router because of MoCa device connection issues with the Arris and they agreed. I should have the G1100 by the end of the week which will hopefully have me back up and running. I don't know why the Arris router isn't working but it has been frustrating to say the least.

    Well that takes care of trying to fix the Minis, then. (If troubleshooting the Minis, as one approach, I'd recommend powering-down all your TiVo boxes, MoCA devices and network gear; and then bringing the gateway back online first, followed by any network switches and MoCA devices, and then finally TiVo boxes. Power cycling in this fashion has been found to resolve odd MoCA lockups.)

    The G1100 router showed up yesterday and the Minis started working as soon as it was installed with a solid MoCa LAN connection. No idea why the Arris wouldn't allow MoCa LAN connections but either way it is on its way back to Frontier (good riddance!).

    Northern...
    No need for a POE filter on FiOS. The TV is delivered over fiber. And the ONT splits everything for phone, TV, and internet. UNlike a regular cable system using coax which does need a POE filter, since the cable signal is shared with multiple dwellings. WHile the cable signal from a FiOS ONT, is only specific to that dwelling.

    What about the performance benefit of the "PoE" MoCA filter?

    I have TiVo Roamio - 4 Tuner. And FIOS - G1100, internet ONLY service.
    Recently bought a TiVo mini for another room.
    If I need to use MoCA to connect my mini to TiVo Roamio, do I need a TiVo bridge or I can use FIOS as my MoCA adapter?

    The G1100 should be able to establish your MoCA LAN, to which the Mini could connect as a client; in fact, it's likely already enabled and waiting for a MoCA client to connect.

    Separately, is your Roamio networked via Ethernet to the G1100? (Both devices need a wired network connection for the best performance.)

    Thank you for the reply and it worked.

    Connected the G1100 to Roamio via Ethernet.

    And connected the Mini to coax-MoCA.

    Currently working with the Tivo support to activate...looks like the software version on Roamio and mini should be same.

    I have my setup working with the NVG468 router and the meb1100. I do not have any minis but i do have 3 tivos connect by moca. The setup looks like this coax from ont to a 3 way splitter one leg to the near by tivo, one leg to the meb1100 (since my connection to the not is coax) one leg to the coax input on the NVG468. All tivos count as a moca client. All is working well.

    If you switched your MoCA 'Bridge' device (your Router), you most likely need to go back and re-setup the MoCA connection. Start by unplugging all the MoCA devices and then start with your TiVO Host, then work your way through the rest of the devices one-by-one.
