Oh, never mind. I see the connection diagram and it brings it in through the Ethernet port.
I have a basic Roamio running TE4. It has a Mini VOX slave. I've been using it wireless for over a month without problems. What model is your router?
The Mini is also using a wireless bridge.
Just be aware (it is my understanding) that the combo OTA/CableCARD DVRs that *do* have MoCA functionality, supposedly have OTA tuners inferior to that in the OTA-only models.
If the OP’s Bolt is indeed a standard Vox model, and not an OTA variant, IMHO it would behoove him to continue to push Tivo for a resolution. If it was an OTA variant that somehow still had the internals for MoCA connectivity, then I guess it was a slow day at the factory, or something.
An ECB would certainly be a cure. If the only use for MoCA is TiVo operations, nearly any inexpensive MoCA bridge would be sufficient.
I'll likely never be convinced that the BOLT OTA actually had MoCA functionality, that it wasn't just configured for a wireless connection that became less stable after the software update in question (perhaps related to other changes in the software to accommodate the new TiVo wireless adapter). The BOLT OTA model has been out for ages, yet this is the first report I've read of a unit mysteriously having MoCA functionality (which should be difficult for a device lacking MoCA hardware).
Quite fascinating...new guy comes along with crazy (but not unbelievable) story of box having powers it shouldn't. Along come some very smart TiVo veterans with lots of knowledge about moca and model numbers. All to help the new guy. Why can't all things work as well as this forum??
+1 on the wireless bridge. Our Tivo Bolt is on a wireless bridge and the Tivo Mini is on a wireless bridge. The main router is a Netgear Nighthawk.
Nighthawk is generic. I'm using an R8300. My Roamio is using its internal wireless, which I did not expect to work without a bridge. The Mini VOX is using the new wifi 5. Both are a floor and a room away from the router.
Another possibility triggering the difficulties, continuing speculation that the BOLT OTA was always wireless ... would be the addition of some other device (Christmas gift) to the home setup that began competing for the wireless bandwidth. (Or even a new device in a neighboring residence, depending on the wireless setup.)
Right. R8300 here too.
I keep thinking the same since a Bolt OTA doesn't do MoCA and never has,
Is there a POE filter installed?
Could there be neighborhood Moca interference?
