Accessories


TiVo Wireless Network Adapter

$2.99/mo

MoCA* Bridge

  • MoCA is the organization that created the protocol for defining the transmission of HD quality video content from outlet-to-outlet over existing home coax wiring.
  • The TiVo Q and Preview have MoCA technology built in. Both units can receive and translate MoCA technology.
  • Other devices, like the TiVo Premiere, are not MoCA-enabled.
  • They need an Ethernet to Coax Bridge (ECB) to connect to the MoCA network. The ECB turns a non-MoCA device into a MoCA-capable device.
  • An ECB is also required if the TiVo Q is not installed within 6 feet of the modem/router.
