MoCA Issues: 40 Channels Lost - Tivo Bolt & TiVo Bridge

MoCA works, but when it's turned on almost 40 channels are lost. I've read/followed instructions and tried restarting/disconnecting everything multiple times (including WiFi & Modem), even changing the cable splitter. Nothing changes. WiFi streaming works fine. But as soon as I turn on MoCA the channels are lost. Seems random. Other COX boxes/TV fine. I think it's the CC and/or TA. Always had issues in the past (missing channels) w/ CC, but not this time. Only w/ MoCA now. The only thing not installed is a POE filter, but why would that make a difference? MoCA works.

Equipment:

TiVo Bolt (COX Motorola CableCard)

Tuning Adapter

TiVo Bridge

Channels Lost Following Initial Set Up w/ CableCard Pairing/Tuning Adapter:

1022*

1061*

* Regained channels after a couple restarts.

Channels Lost Following MoCA Set Up: Message: "Searching for a signal on this channel. (V52)

    If you haven't installed the PoE filter yet that could be a problem. The filter doesn't make MoCA work but rather it prevents MoCA from interfering with other services and ultimately leaking into our network and affecting other customers. -

  • I was going to try it [POE filter] but it doesn't make any sense as to why it would help this situation. I hope it does. But if it doesn't help... then what? I'm also going to pick up a couple more CableCards, as well as another Tuning Adapter, just to make sure it's not related to those.

    From TiVo:

    MoCA POE Filter. A MoCA (Multimedia over Coax) "Point of Entryfilter is designed to prevent MoCA signals from leaving your home through the cable box or radiating out of an antenna, and may improve the performance of a MoCA home network. Install it at the point of entry of your antenna or cable line into your home.

    Nothing about preventing loss of channel signals.

    I did also see Tivo guides that say when this happens you may need another filter for the tuning adapter. Keep in mind that MoCA interferes with cable service if not correctly installed. With that in mind it makes sense you would lose services when enabling MoCA.

  • ok... I'll try PoE filter as mentioned; at entry to house and at TA.

    The TA was suppose to come with a POE according to instructions on COX but it's a different TA set up.

  • I just discovered that MoCA w/ TiVo Bolt requires a specific type of PoE w/ 70-80dB rejection - meaning their own TiVo PoE filter. How convenient!

    • TiVo authorized MoCA (PoE) filter for TiVo Bolt, TiVo Roamio and prior TiVo models. PoE filters that are not TiVo approved or authorized will likely not work to protect your home network. The TiVo Bolt, in particular, requires a specialized filter that provides 70dB - 80dB of rejection.
    • Authorized and approved by TiVo for use with TiVo DVRs. Specially designed for use with TiVo DVRs.
    • Bandstop provides 70-80dB of rejection.
