Advertisements This is the second post saying basically the same thing ... that there is a better way to do what someone is doing with an older TiVo. I think these comments might be missing the point that people already already own older TiVos (and, for me at least, with lifetime, so I'll assume that the others also have lifetime service on theirs, until there is a reason to believe otherwise). It costs $0 to continue using the older TiVo for whatever it offers, whether that is instead of purchasing a Mini or instead of purchasing what is needed to set up a MoCA bridge. Is there some reason why people aren't making that $0 cost assumption when assessing whether some other way is "better" (other than assuming that people are comfortable selling their hardware to others online)? I was a bit surprised that I didn't find a way to configure my new Bolt to run a MoCA bridge to support running social media apps on and downloading firmware updates for my smart TV and blu-ray player; the first thing that ran through my brain was, "Dang, good thing I can just continue to use my Roamio Plus for that."
