So no MoCA bridging on the new Edge? That’s lame. Definitely a no go for me
Where’d ya hear/see that?
Should take Tubi's content and stick it in TiVOs Guide interface and give Pluto a run for the money!!
I think I read it somewhere. Don’t remember where, and cannot find it now. Is that not the case?
From speculation early in this thread?
They didn’t include MoCA in the BOLT OTA, but I honestly don’t believe that they’d pull MoCA from a “for cable” DVR.
TiVO Edge For Cable (Series 7) known specs:
2TB 2.5” HDD (SEAGATE ST2000VT000 SATA 6Gb/s, 5400 RPM)
Ethernet/MoCA Bridge, Ethernet, WiFi (3 MAC ID’s as Roamio Pro/Bolt+)
Dolby Vision support
“It was originally widely assumed that Dolby Vision hardware needed to carry a dedicated chip. However, it is now possible to add Dolby Vision support via a firmware update to devices with sufficiently powerful processors.”
D'OH! I keep forgetting it is a combo box being used as OTA. Basically wiped cable from my memory after installing an antenna and telling them where to go.
Still, please don't put thoughts into its head.
Doesn't the streaming function use a separate MAC address?
I thought MAC address assignment was based on hardware interface: ie, you'll typically find two MAC addresses for a device that handles both wireless and wired ethernet (one MAC for each interface), for example- not for how the port is being used. My guess is the third MAC address would be needed for IP over cable, or MoCA.
2.5 SeaGate? You are asking for an early death!! These will be disposable boxes, much like a Garrity flashlight. Dead Sea full of TiVos.
The mystery is that one of the 3 MAC addresses in the Roamio Pro/Plus is for the built-in Stream module ... which makes me wonder if TiVo isn’t shifting back to a separate transcoding chip in order to bump-up the mobile streaming specs, relative to the BOLT, as the streaming box app nears.
Yes, exactly ... at least on the Roamio Pro/Plus with the built-in Stream module.
HELP...... Someone has "Mikeguy's" Forum account id and password!!!!!
Oh, I was going by the below post.
Thanks for posting that. I'd taken my BOLT through all 4 networking options and couldn't get it to list MAC2; and I found the Wi-Fi MAC to be entirely different, as your quoted post relates.
You might be right about the streaming. My 3TB Bolt VOX lists two MAC addresses while a Roamio Plus lists three MAC addresses. Both Bolt and Roamio have MoCA, Ethernet, and WiFi!
Spoiler: Bolt and Roamio pics showing MAC addresses
If this thing gets Dolby Vision support they damn well better go back and update the Bolt's OS to support it as well. There's absolutely zero reason why this shouldn't be possible. That's one of my biggest annoyances with the Bolt at the moment, and why I hardly use it for any streaming.
This problem if it occurs and others like it, our baked into the TiVo specs, hardly noticed at the early stage of a new TiVo, is weak specs, but becomes problematic for upgrading. Either weak specs are foolishly used to keep cost down or done purposely. Instead of paying a little extra for good specs that could handle upgrades and future unforeseen buggy software fixes, you end paying more for another "new" TiVo, plus fee/lifetime.
This insane cycle with this company coming out with weak specs hardware at the start has to stop. Maybe it's this company's way of "Hoisting them on their own petard," the price point sensitively challenged. This cycle of weak specs in the long run's bottom line is unnecessarily frustrating to company, it's customers, and expensive to both.
Can we get an AMEN for Joe3's comments!!!!!!!!
This is the same as with cell phones and other tech gear. Every couple of years they come out with a new model with better specs.
No, TiVo has been doing the opposite with their specs. Other tech gear gives you better core processing and a choice. They push the envelope, or dare I say it, here it comes, they push the "edge," but not the farthest point away from the center of the technology.
