I have a Renewed TIVO Bolt 500gb, bought during the recent black friday sale. After lots of trial and error, multiple calls with Verizon Fios and Tivo, a trip to Verizon to get a new cable card, and a service call from Verizon Fios, I have found it works with a 6 way splitter with the unused outputs capped, but not with a 2 or 4 way splitter. So... are TIVO boxes really this finicky???? Is there something wrong with the box? This has basically become a part time job trying to get this thing to work correctly. Long story: Initial install with Verizon Fios split the coax coming out of the ONT box with a 6 way MOCA splitter. Only two outputs were used, one for the coax to the tivo, the other to the gateway moden/wireless router. Remaining four output uncapped. Verizon box worked great, no picture issues. Open up and install the Bolt - the TIVO box works except for tons of pixelation on most channels. I'm given multiple fixes from TIVO and Verizon over the next 12 days: "change to F type splitter", "replace cable card with latest model / part number", "get a signal booster", "have Verizon come to to check the signal". I ignore the F type splitter and booster advice, I swap the cable card with no improvement, finally we schedule Verizon service call. Verizon guy comes, says signal is probably weak because 6 way MOCA splitter is leaking signal through the upcapped extra outputs. He swaps it out with a 2 way splitter, and also just gives me a 4 way splitter with extra caps just to have for the future. End result: no picture on TIVO box. NOTHING AT ALL. Forget pixelation, now there just is zero picture. Verizon guy confirms signal is good coming into Tivo box, and much stronger than before. He says call Tivo and he'll talk with them. But TIVO is closed on Sunday mornings here on the East Coast. As Verizon guy leaves, he says, "good luck". So as I wait to TIVO service to open, I try the 4 way splitter, and now I get picture again, but pixelation issues are even worse than before. Also not getting all channels. So I try the 6 way splitter again, this time capping all the unused outputs and the picture is perfect, no more pixelation. Original problem FINALLY solved. Are TIVO boxes really this finicky? Do I have a lemon? I'm glad I finally have good picture, but worried if I have to change my setup in the future I may have a hard time finding the right/magic combination again.
