    Thanks. I actually do use moca adapters to distribute internet around my house. However, I purchased MI424WR routers on ebay for much cheaper than the amazon link you posted. The MI424WR can be easily configured as a moca bridge.

    I'm about to take the plunge on Friday...

    Will all my season passes adjust to the new channels automatically?

    I'm having a problem currently with "soccer" in that it covers about 6 channels. Unfortunately, even though they're listed it sometimes totally skips a game. I'm wondering how something like that will translate.

    The SP should unless the channel names are different.

    They should adjust but I know in the past when I switched a TiVo from Comcast to FiOS or FiOS to Comcast, the Season Pass would still reflect the original channel numbers even though it would properly record from the new channel locations. So eventually I made new Season Passes so they would reflect the proper channel numbers so it would not be confusing.

    I just switched from comcast to fios three weeks ago and everything adjusted to the new channel lineup just fine. Don't forget to run the guided set up and you should be golden.

    So the actual SP changed to reflect the new channel numbers? If so this is a welcome change.

    Hi, I have a tivo premiere. If I switch from Comcast to Verizon, will I lose all of my old Comcast recordings, and will I be able to watch them with Verizon? Thanks!

    Anything you previously recorded you will still be able to watch.
