Yes, it is on. I did manually connect.
Then you have anger issues that you need to deal with, because you've been an immense _______, and the accusations of "insecurity" were laughable given your personalizing of the thread. And, honestly, if you haven't been resistant, then you've had severe difficulties translating either/or straightforward text and exceedingly simple diagrams into reality -- as this most recent case exemplifies.
Hope you get it working, but, man, you've been unpleasant to work with, to put it mildly.
attempted a TiVo service connection from the Mini?
played a recording and/or live TV from the Mini?
connected to the Internet from the Mini (streaming app access)?
p.s. Again, these are not tests of ULTIMATE success, just looking to prove solid MoCA functionality between the Mini and the MoCA adapter. You need to test the basics to prove it's working... before trying the Mini in its original location, with god only knows what between the wall outlets that could block the MoCA signal. (But, bottom line, you'll know that the issue is between the wall outlets if it doesn't work, which the Comcast tech should remedy.)
If "manual connect" means you performed a "TiVo service connection," then it applies to the box from which the connection was initiated.
Hopefully they'll be able to locate all the ends of all the wires.
Try to get them to basically hook the whole thing up the way it is now, just with longer wires in other rooms...
Comcast should not need to touch ANYTHING within the rooms, themselves; their help should only be needed on the other side of the drywall and wherever the central junction is (basement, closet, behind a wall plate).
It's a trend.
About the TV connections...
I'm with @kpeters59, I believe, in still not understanding what value running coax to the TVs provides, nowadays --- especially since you're on Comcast, and so likely 100% digital, meaning your TV can't directly tune any cable content.
The proper setup, as described and diagrammed by post #16 -- accepting that the main splitter and "PoE" MoCA filter are out of your control, at present. You may have come close to testing it once, but failed to follow-through when the Roamio began rebooting. To my knowledge, based only on the information posted to the thread, you've yet to test the Mini at its permanent location, with the Living Room (Room 2) gear properly connected.
As has been posted, the MoCA connection for the Mini from its permanent location may not work, but a successful direct-connect test proves basic MoCA functionality between the Mini and MoCA adapter, so the problem would then likely lie between the coax wall outlets... which Comcast will hopefully address on Wednesday.
I wasn't resistant, I had the suggested page 1 setup it just didn't connect. It wasn't suggested to try this setup with the mini until recently.
I had that setup, it wouldn't connect.
We're talking about the Tivo connections, I didn't ask about my tv connections.
No, you didn't, at least you never reported it, or not clearly. The only times you tested it when it was close to being set up that way, you still had the "PoE" MoCA filter in place in the Living Room.
You're also a smart ass sometimes too.
No, @kpeters59 and I asked about the TV connections, because if they serve no purpose then you're needlessly weakening the coax signal.
This is another good example of resistance, and poor attitude.
