    I'm a new tivo and mini owner. How do I hook everything together? Is there a guide on here or some where else? Do i use coax cable or do I use eithernet cable?

    You can use either, but ethernet is preferred.

    Manuals are available on tivo.com support site. All TiVo boxes can use Ethernet connections, and this is the preferred way to set them up.

    SOME TiVo boxes can use MoCA to provide Ethernet communication over coax - all Minis can do this, but we need to know what model of TiVo DVR you have to tell you if it is MoCA capable. MoCA often is very easy to set up, but for some people it can be a real headache. Too many variables to cover here without a LOT more information from you about your house, TV signal source, and home network setups.

    Use wired Ethernet if you can!
