    You do realize that we're not obligated to help you, don't you?

    We'd ask for prompt, coherent posts and there's people who would take their time to help you with what they know. Now you've run off what most anybody here would say is THE most helpful person on this forum.

    You've been told, probably more than once, all that needs to be done to make your setup work. Please go through all the posts. Maybe list them and verify that they've been completed and report back.

    Also, how'd the CableCo visit go? Wasn't that today?

    I shouldn't call people names, I'm sorry. It was clear but sometimes I need to do other things besides this. I needed to unplug for awhile.

    Wow!

    It seems to me that your 'forum reading skills' need some practice.

    Do you get in to 'text fights' a lot?

    I never said anyone was obligated to help me, I've said thanks to people. I appreciate the nice advice. If people want to insult me, then I may not be very nice in return. I was getting a lot of judgmental responses and felt like I either needed to put my foot down or continue to be walked on. I would appreciate someone who doesn't talk down to me and in plain English. I don't need semantics. I've explained more than once how my setup looks. I took out the Poe filter and added an ethernet splitter to my original white paper layout. Now, I've just added the mini to the setup taking the coax from the bridge. Now, I'm not sure which coax to use for the bridge. Comcast didn't show up even though they said sometime between 2-4, so it is rescheduled for tomorrow.

    Again, I believe that YOU have taken things the wrong way.

    Start back at the beginning of this thread and complete everything that's been suggested to you.

    Probably especially Mr. Kaufman's suggestion to try a 'test setup' with the TiVo, the Mini, the MoCA Adapter and the Router all connected IN THE SAME ROOM and to the SINGLE 4 PORT SPLITTER and in a 'mock' desired wiring scheme to verify that all pieces are functional. You can either move the HDMI cable between the 2 TiVo's or switch the TV's Input, if necessary.

    Once you've verified that, then you can realize that once things are moved back to their final positions, that if they're not working, it's probably because there's a wire, that may be inside a wall, that's doing something you don't need it do.

    No, I don't get into text fights, maybe 2 in my life. People are getting very critical so my choices are to say "these are the changes I've made" which I've done but it didn't really make a difference. "If you'd just...." I don't need that. I ignored it for awhile then all the semantics about little things I say in my explanations are unnecessary. I've been making the changes described but when there are multiple people saying different things and how I need to do or try something that I've most likely already done, it doesn't help. Plain English in a reasonable tone is always better than some of the stuff I've gotten recently.

    I do have that setup currently, just not sure which coax to move to the bridge since I moved the bridge coax to the mini. I appreciate that response, you didn't use semantics to mock me and you used plain English.

    I expect that the answer to your TiVo problems are probably on the 1st page of this thread and here we are on the 6th, so...

    For clarity:

    The TiVo, the Mini, the Actiontec and the Router (and the cable in) should be THE ONLY DEVICES connected via COAX to the 4 port splitter.

    The Roamio and the Actiontec should have Ethernet plugged in to the Router.

    The Roamio should be configured for Ethernet and the Mini for MoCA..

    By Actiontec you mean Tivo bridge? What about a coax to the tv?
    What haven't I tried that was on the first page?

    But didn't you say there may be a splitter behind a wall that I have no control over?

    Why would you possibly need a coax to the TV?

    I believe that I asked that question several pages back...

    In life, sometimes you never know without trying, right...?

    Let's see...

    If only the necessary connections had been described...
    That paragraph sure was a semantic bear, but I'd have hoped one half or the other might have made it through. Alas...

    So maybe the post should have provided an aid for the semantic-weary. Oh, wait...

    [​IMG]

    Kinda tough to be less semantic than a bloody diagram, but apparently even the diagram included too many semantics. #%@%$ semantics!!!


    So, I guess *not*. Live and learn.

    Ok, It's setup, I took the coax from the splitter and hooked the bridge to the mini. I'm frustrated with the process mostly not at any one person.

    And it worked as expected?

    The 2nd light on the MoCA Adapter turned on?

    You were able to configure the Mini?

    Yes, I'm aware of what needed to be done.
