Network-wise, everything is working great since disconnecting the Ethernet. Let me ask you though - what are your SNR readings? Mine are all 42 or 41. I've always had minor pixelation and hiccups with the FiOS DVRs, but never thought it could be related to a too hot SNR. I've been reading that 42 might be way too hot for Tivo and I'm wondering if that's why I'm seeing what I would describe as increased pixelation on some channels. Thinking of adding in a splitter or two before the Roamio to knock back the SNR.

Yep, same readings here. I added a splitter.

Unfortunately, I bailed on the Roamio experience. It just wasn't working well enough and didn't want to miss my return/refund window. (Not with that much upfront money in play.) As comparatively weak feature-wise as the FiOS Motorola DVRs are, they've always worked well. So back into service they go.

Sorry to hear it.

My Roamio/Mini setup has been perfect since I switched to the FiOS splitters. Still 100% signal strength, but I needed to tone down the signal a little. I only had one tuning issue a few weeks ago, but it was showing some tuning errors (corrected/uncorrected) on the DVR Diagnostics screen. It's been issue free with a zero error count since I switched to the officially supported splitters. I went with the new MoCA 2.0 FiOS splitters, though it's only MoCA 1.1.

Will keep my summary post updated: http://forums.solids...mp-Observations

Yeah, I tried a bunch of things with splitters and attenuators, MoCA, Ethernet, etc. but it was just too flaky. I may have been able to get it all working perfectly with more time, but if I didn't, I'd have been stuck with a big cost and bigger frustration. Oh well. Maybe down the road again sometime. Have fun.
