    I am using a TiVo BOLT and three Minis. After trying several configurations of MoCA and Ethernet connections, it seems that any configuration in which the BOLT and a Mini are not on the same mode of connection results in the Mini periodically losing connectivity with the BOLT. In other words, if the BOLT and a Mini are both MoCA or both Ethernet it works reliably. If one is MoCA and the other Ethernet, it fails periodically (e.g. after 10-30 minutes when playing live TV on the Mini).

    My MoCA network is created by an Actiontec ECB6200 adapter, so the TiVos are only MoCA clients.

    Has anyone else seen this problem or have a suggested fix?

    Is it possible to put them all on Moca? Or is that fix too obvious and you've already considered it and it's not possible.

    Can you report what model number router and/or switch to which the ECB6200 and TiVo devices would connect if/when using Ethernet? (Curious if your issue relates to the "IGMP Snooping" or green switch issue reported by some.)

    For a router (not a switch): 192.168.1.1 (login), then Advanced, then Setup, then WAN Setup, check the box for Disable IGMP Proxying.

    It's also where MTU is set (remember that problem?).
