Lesson Learned on MoCA and Cable TV Set Top Boxes not Working
I thought my recent lesson learned might be helpfult to others. Briefly, upgraded my Xfinity DVR and two HD settop boxes. A couple days later, got my new gateway TG1682G. Had (and still having) trouble with Wifi printer connecting. In troubleshooting that on my own, I enabled MoCA. Next day tried to watch TV on one of the HD settop boxes and it wouldn't get a signal. After an hour with tech support, decided to schedule technician. But I started thinking was there a connection between new Gateway and the settop boxes???? Disabled Gateway and tvs worked! Enabled Gateway, tvs did not work. Then remembered I enabled MoCA, not knowing what the h*ll I was doing. Maybe that was the problem? Disabled MoCA, restarted everything - TVs work fine, internet fine, phone fine. So the lesson learned is, don't screw with the settings on the Gateway unless you know what you are doing!
