Re: [TIVO] Anyone regret getting TiVo?

The router does not need to support MOCA if the user has a TiVo. The TiVo would get the guide info via cat5 and picture/audio via coax, neither of which require MOCA.

If TiVo required a MOCA connection then it would pretty much not work on any cable system.

You're right, but I was under the impression Verizon only enables either Coax or Ethernet at the ONT, never both, and as such a MoCA device would be required to feed the TiVo with both Coax and Ethernet.

Ah, I understand. My FiOS router has both COAX and Ethernet which means, theoretically, that I can get rid of the FiOS router, hook my Netgear wireless router via the WAN port to the ONT and leave the COAX for the video.

Now, on to searching for a good sale...
