Hi, I have FIOS and just got Tivo Romio and two Tivo Minis. The Tivo Romio setup allows 2 ways to connect to Internet, Ethernet or MOCA. I can get Ethernet to the Romio.
From COAX cable entering my house, I have the main coax feed from ONT connecting to an 8 way splitter. 1st leg of splitter connects to Actiontec Router - Interent access works great in my house. 2nd leg off of splitter connects to Tivo Romio. ROmio and TV worls great.
I'm now trying to get the 2 Tivo Mini's working using existing coax in the house. 3rd and 4th legs off of 8 way splitter each connect to the two Tico Minis. When I set them up, I tell them to use MOCA. They can't connect.
There is an option in the Romio to "use this DVR to setup a MOCA network". if I turn that on, a few seconds later it brings down the Internet connectivity in my house. I assume this happenss because there is already a MOCA network running in my house due to FIOS and the 2nd MOCA network created by the Tivo Romio is causing a conflict.
Can someome tell me what to connect to what and what options I need to setup on the Romio? I've snooped around various forums and see some "plug ang play" success stories with Tivo minis connecting over a MOCA network in FIOS homes but I'm not having that good luck.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated!
I solved my own problem. I went into the FIOS router and disabled the COAX LAN via "My Network, Network Connections". I then told the Romio to "Use the DVR to setup a MOCA network".
I messed with the FIOS router in an effort to get its MOCA LAN network to operate with my Romio and Minis, but I couldn't get that to work, so I disabled the MOCA LAN on the FIOS router and turned on MOCA LAN on the Romio and all is good.
