Advertisements We're coming back to cable and I need some advice about the mini. We moved to a new home back in 2018 and, sadly, the only option was AT&T (stellar internet, shitting TV) so our 5 Tivo DVRs (with Lifetime) and 2 minis were shelved ,and we've been using less-than-stellar Youtube TV and other subpar streaming options the past two years. We now have a traditional cable provider in the area, so we just signed up for TV and 1Gb Internet. I'm retiring our two (2) Premiere DVR, so 2 Bolt+ DVRs and 1 Roamio Pro are being deployed. So we'll have 18-tuners and 11TB of storage after re-purposing the two 1TB DVR Expanders from the Premieres. I just ordered/received a Mini VOX w/USB Wi-FI, and have a Mini (version 1) and Mini (version 2); total of 3 minis. I had planned to install the Mini VOX on the patio w/Wi-Fi, and the two Minis in bedrooms using Ethernet. Is this the most efficient configuration? -I can run Cat5e or RG6 to the patio Mini (nothing there right now) so is the 5Ghz Wi-Fi good to stream without issues (I just installed a new Asus RT-AC5300 router and I get 100+ Mb on the patio with the laptop)? -I kinda recall having issues with Moca reliability on one or both the older Minis. Is this still an issue and is it wise to use Ethernet over Moca for the minis? Also, does the 5Ghz USB work with the Ver 1 and/or Ver 2 mini? If so, is it reliable...or just stick with Ethernet? For simplicity sake, ethernet to the minis would be my preference. However, my honey and I work from home and we're connecting multiple computers via VPN to company intranets, in addition to our other family laptops chewing. Can I trust Moca? If so, this will keep a lot of traffic away from the switch/router...and work comes first. Thanks. P.S. We are massively excited to be using our Tivos. I cannot tell you how much we have missed using them on a daily basis.
