    Digging through my closet I realized I have way too many MoCa bridges. Since I first heard about them here and used them with my TiVos I thought I'd offer them up here. Just pay shipping and I'll send them out.

    Actiontec MI424-WR Rev C (no power supply, takes 5V 3A)
    Actiontec MI424-WR Rev D
    Actiontec MI424-WR Rev F (two of these)
    Actiontec WCB3000N (I have two of these, both running slightly modified firmware to open up the web UI a bit. There's a post/thread around here about that.)

    I still use MoCa through my house, but I've upgraded to Motorola MoCa 2.0 devices (and still have some Netgear MoCa 1.1s too) These all worked when I decommissioned them - I think I upgraded to the Fs because the C/Ds kept killing those 5v 3A power supplies. The Rev F uses 10V 1.6A. Then I briefly tried the WCB3000Ns to try to fix some wireless issues. I ended up abandoning all that and just getting Google Wifi for wireless.

    How did you set up connection with the MI424 Routers - i'm coming from an Actiontec ECB2500 that appears to have died, and it used coax in/coax out. The MI424 only has 1 Coax, did you then put USB from router to TIVO?

    Coax from the wall goes into a splitter. One coax out from the splitter goes into the router. The other goes to the coax in on the TiVo. Then an ethernet cable connects one LAN port on the router to the ethernet port on the TiVo. No USB involved.

    Someone else will have to address whether any MOCA settings on the MI424 will need tinkering.
