    Need your help guys.

    Looking to setup a Tivo Roamio OTA / (2) Tivo Mini's (Bedrooms) / MoCA (Bedrooms).

    I have attached a diagram of my suggested setup.

    Will this work?

    Thanks for your help.

    Well done. Assuming MoCa-rated splitters and you have a strong enough antenna signal to deliver sufficient power to the Roamio OTA, it looks great. I'd suggest an unbalanced 3-way splitter for the initial splitter, to reduce antenna signal loss enroute to the Roamio OTA.

    The only customization you might consider, IF you find the antenna signal strength wanting at the Roamio OTA (noting that 72 is the max reading you'll see), would be to use a pair of antenna/satellite diplexers to conserve as much signal as possible for the Roamio OTA.
    • You're planning "Option 1" in the attached diagram, below, but "Option 3" could be a fallback if the antenna signal strength has room for improvement (i.e. is sub 72) at the Roamio OTA.
    • The second diplexer would replace the 2-way at the Roamio OTA, connecting the DVR to the "ANT (VHF/UHF)" input and the MoCA adapter to the "SAT" input.
    Again, you should be good, as you originally diagrammed it.
