    How can you tell they are using a 1GHZ splitter, I cant see any markings but the 8 outputs? But if that is the case, I will bring it up to them..

    If you look in your splitter above the bottom ports you can see it is marked 5-1002GHZ It will work but just surprised

    The Mini's are Moca 1.1 So those are good... The Bolts and some of the Pace/Arris Branded Tivo units support Moca 2.0 They can use higher frequencies which is why higher range splitters are used

    It would be a 1600mhz splitter.. Dont think they are using a 2gig one No performance would most likely not change

    Moca 2.0 ranges between 650-875 Mhz.

    Those splitter are fine.
    Tivo recommends Any splitter rated over 1000 Mhz but does not recommended splitters over 2200 Mhz.

    Blueridge Cable uses Roamio Plus .
    Real Tivo platform.

    The Pace model Tivos, are not real Tivos .
    They are the X1 platform with Tivo software.
    Just like that THR22 that Directv calls a Tivo , that a crappy HR with Tivo software .

    Blueridge Tivos also Supports VOD, Netflix, Hulu, and requires no tuning adapters.

    Ya. So not the X1 platform. The pace units running the software have the same specs as the Roamio hardware The pace units also support all of the above

    Google is your friend

    MoCA 2.0
    MoCA 2.0 offers actual throughputs (MAC rate) up to 1 Gbps. Operating frequency range is 500 to 1650 MHz. Packet error rate is 1 packet error in 100 million.

    Sure that Moca operating range, But thats not Tivos Moca Range.
    Tivo only requires a Splitter rated for 1000 Mhz.

    And yes that Pace Tivo is the X1 platform.
    It is not a Tivo made box.

    Moca 1.1 also uses up to 1500 MHz and depending on the channels used you can go over 1k. While the system will default to use lower it can go higher if you tinker with settings

    Yes the X1 is used across multiple cable companies with or without Tivo software.

    But only a Handful of Cable Provider actually use an off the Shelf Real Tivo Roamio platform.
    RCN and BRC are 2 in PA that use them.
    The XG1 platform requires Moca splitters up to 1600 MHZ.
    For what reason I can't say.

    Tivo Roamios and Dish Hoppers Use a range of 650-875.

    To the OP,
    are you using an ACTIONTEC ECB2500C Moca Network Adapter?
    Or are you using ethernet with Bridging enabled on the Tivo Roamio T6?

    Either one of these would get installed with a 1002 mhz splitter to your Minis.

    I wouldn't change that splitter.
