    Ethernet uses the router. There are a lot of routers that old and slow. If I only had one Mini and no local cable outlet where I wanted to locate the Mini, I would take the easy route and use what was available. MoCA is supported, like Ethernet so there's no difference there. MoCA has diagnostics in the TiVo for MoCA, Ethernet does not. Even some wireless bridges have error counters. I guess there could be a router with great diagnostics for each connection, but I haven't found one.

    I guess since I use wireless bridges you could say I use Ethernet myself. MoCA just seems simpler when a Mini is used. I live in a very old house, not mine, that has some ugly RG-8 cables run to rooms that is over 20 years old.

    HI. I stumbled on to this thread. I am using a travel router configured as a client, namely the TP-Link TL-WR902AC. it works and seems quite stable. I also like that it is very compact. I imagine the n-version of this, the TL-WR802N, would also serve the purpose of connecting a Mini to a TiVo unit, for a few dollars less.
