    So far this device description makes zero sense to me. I can use this little box as a wireless box, just like l do with DIRECTV now? Because the current setup doesn't use any catv wiring at all. It uses hdmi. Does the coaxial connection connect to TV   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      The Tivo Bridge MoCa device carries your cable signal (from your main Tivo unit) and internet service over coax; this box allows you to get both services in areas where you do not have either cable connection, and the internet. You connect this box in the desired room where you want TV service, you connect your Tivo Mini to this Tivo Bridge. Follow setup of Tivo Mini, and within a couple of hours or a day (based on Tivo registration process), you will have TV and streaming services.

        Works great with my three tivo minis. Skip paying the cable company $30 bucks a month, thus eventually minis and bridge pay for themselves. Regarding Other Non-Tivo Devices: Per Tivo Manual: Can I use MoCA to connect non-TiVo devices to my network? Absolutely. Once MoCA is enabled in your home, you can connect any device to your MoCA. If the device is already MoCA-ready, you can connect it directly to the network using a coax cable. If it’s not yet MoCA-ready, you can connect it using a TiVo Bridge.

        It could, *if* you have a MoCA bridge somewhere else on your network. Your router might already provide MoCA bridge from its network to coax. Or you might have a TiVo unit that already provides MoCA bridging like Roamio Pro. Otherwise, if you need your TiVo on your *wireless* network, NO, this does not take the place of the Wireless N adapter.

          No, it can only piggyback network communication onto the coax.
