    Hi folks, after having Roamio's for years. I was without TV for 4 years while in law school. So I just bought the new Edge... the 4 K is awesome. But a few things have changed. I used to have a roamio on two different TVs in my house without and issue.

    So now I have the new Edge on my living room tv ethernet connected. I want record my programs, watch them in bedroom. So there is this mini lux (I have never used a mini). But it appears the only way to do these mini's is moca which my apartment complex Xfinity may not support - I don't know.

    So can I just buy a second Edge, connect it wireless (the cost and monthly fee is of no concern). I just want the best quality pic and no slowing between my two tivos.

    Tell me the best way to do this. I do not have anyway to run the second tivo with an ethernet. My apartment does not have ethernet connection in each room.

    Am I forgetting anything?

    I’m pretty sure MoCa or Ethernet is your only option to stream. Wireless doesn’t have the bandwidth.

    Wireless is doable to connect a Mini Lux to your Edge. You can use the officially supported WiFi adapter from TiVo:

    TiVo WiFi 5 USB Adapter

    or try another WiFi bridge, which won’t be officially supported, but may work as some here have posted having success.

    When using a wireless adapter with a Mini, it connects to your router. A 10 year old router could be an issue. But given a TiVo wifi 5 and reasonable environment there should be no problems.

    Price is no object? Get another Edge and live like a king!

    No need for moca, if you can get ethernet to where the mini is.
