    If you're still losing connection, I'd consider swapping out Hardware. Or at least trying to test if it's not some kind of hardware issue.

    Start small and grow out until you see problems occur. By small, I mean make a direct coax connection from the Roamio to a single Mini and see if it behaves. If that works, move it to an existing single segment of your house wiring; then add a splitter somewhere and the second mini, and then the cable modem segment, etc. But if the direct connect works consistently, then at least you know it's a lot less likely to be that hardware.

    How would the coax hook up between devices? There is one coax connection on the Roamio that is connected to the cable coming in from the street.

    If the Roamio is creating the MoCA network, the Mini will connect to the Roamio if you simply use a direct coax cable connection between the two devices. Obviously it won't be recording cable TV or showing Live TV, but you'll be able to test using the Mini to play back anything already recorded.

    If the MoCA network is created by your cable modem, then you might just first switch to the Roamio creating the network and doing the simple test above to see if there still is a problem. Then as the next step, just use your new 3-way splitter and just split off coax from the street to the cable modem, the Roamio and the Mini (and have the POE filter between the street and the input to the splitter).

    If you can do all that keeping things in the same room, or using new coax cables so you're not having to guess that things in the wall are connected already as expected and don't have any other issues, you can at least verify the hardware functions, or if not, know to get a piece exchanged/serviced.
