C130 indicates the Mini can't find a MoCA network on the coax lines.I tried swapping the two to maybe bypass that (I'm not very good with cables) I have the Roamio in the room with my router/modem and it is working. The mini is in the living room and I'm getting message C130. What am I missing? Do I still need the bridge and filter with this setup?
Just to clarify, the term "bridge" is the one of the most ill defined terms ever used in computer terminology and has lead to great and unnecessary confusion....just because Tivo uses the term "bridge" to describe their MoCA adapter does not make it any clearer.Just to clarify, the "adapters" people are referring to are "bridges."
It would be good to specify what device gave you this code...was it the mini?So, I connected everything and it worked ok for about half an hour then I got a C33 message and giving me a message that in order to use MoCa I'd need to unplug the ethernet cable. It asked me to input a 12-16 digit pin code for the MoCa and it is not working and won't connect to the network manually. I now have the ethernet cable attached to modem and MoCa adapter instead of mini.

What model Roamio do you have? A 4-tuner model, or a 6-tuner Roamio Plus or Pro?
Good info. Changing device locations was a good move, due to the 4-tuner Roamio lacking any MoCA functionality. As your setup was originally described in the OP, you would have needed two MoCA adapters, one at the modem location to bridge MoCA traffic to the router LAN and a second MoCA adapter at the Roamio's remote location to provide the Roamio a network connection via MoCA/coax. With the Roamio and Mini locations switched, the Roamio can be connected via Ethernet to the router and the Mini's built-in MoCA connectivity allows it to connect as a MoCA client -- meaning you just need a single MoCA adapter total, installed at the modem/router location, to establish the MoCA network.I have a 4 tuner.
What is "everything" and how, specifically, was it connected? e.g. Does "everything" include a "PoE" MoCA filter properly installed? What MoCA adapter did you buy, and how, specifically, is it connected (i.e. what's connected to each port)?So, I connected everything and it worked ok
It asked me to input a 12-16 digit pin code for the MoCa
Agreed.Generally on a home network with one MoCA network, using encryption is not necessary or a good idea so long as a MoCA filter is properly placed.
ok, I wasn't clear about that but in settings/change network settings it has Ethernet and MoCa both on and going into MoCa it says "set up as client" or "Turn off MoCa" when I choose the first one, it says "to use MoCa, unplug the Ethernet cable from the back of the Tivo box." I unplugged it then it shows a "MoCa encryption" screen with "No Ecryption" and "Enter a Key" it also says "If MoCa was set up by your cable company or pro installer (which it wasn't) it is recommended you don't change settings. I was thinking I'd enter a Key b/c I set it up not my cable provider but I've also gone the other direction of not "no encryption", I then get the C33 message.What is "it" that asked for a code?
Maybe you could type out the bulk of the error message?
Yikes!The coax goes to a splitter - one end goes to modem/router the other goes to another splitter which goes to the tv and the other to another splitter which then goes to the mini and the other goes to the bridge.
Ok, I bought a 4 way splitter to remove some coax cables and I spoke to Tivo customer service and I couldn't find the MoCa option on the Roamio network settings, so she said the solution is to get another bridge/adapter like you said in the second paragraph. But I think I might be able to arrange it so the Roamio and bridge are in the same room so I wouldn't need a 2nd adapter. Thanks for the help.Your adjusted setup requiring just a single MoCA adapter should be similar to the following reference diagram ...

The switch is optional; the splitter at the DVR/bridge/gateway location could be just a 2-way if your MoCA adapter includes a STB/RF Out pass-through port, allowing connection of the Roamio or gateway to the pass-through port; and the Minis and their associated splitter would need to be adjusted based on however many connections you need.
Lastly, if you needed the Roamio at one of the remote locations, rather than a Mini, you'd need to purchase a second MoCA adapter for installation at the remote Roamio location, to provide the Roamio with a MoCA connection back to the main MoCA bridge.
The latest development is that several TCP ports are closed and need to be opened says Tivo. Is that a known problem? I have the modem/router, Roamio in one room. POE filter, bridge, and mini in the other room. Both lights on the bridge were lit, and the MoCa is now discoverable but the network still won't connect.Given the latest post I'm not really sure what devices you have in what rooms. If you need help mapping the diagram from the previous post to your actual needs, feel free to post back with details.
