Verizon TV One Mini won't connect with Bonded MoCA 2.0 Network Adapter

Verizon TV One Mini with MoCA network connection in upstairs bedroom with a very weak WiFi reception.  Installed Bonded MoCA 2.0 Network Adapter in order to use an Ethernet connection for my Roku streaming device.

Connection is coax cable from wall to coax in and coax out to TV One mini.  Ethernet from adapter to Roku.  On power up adapter displays two solid green lights.  Ethernet speed test shows 98mbps. I have 100/100 service.

However the TV One Mini reports no network connection.  When I reboot, it defaults to a WiFi connection which is not acceptable in that room.

Do I have a defective unit? Or is it not possible to have both a MoCA and Ethernet connection from the the same source?

  • Ralph,

    We can not find any information regarding the TV One Mini as having MoCA capability at all. You will need to verify with Verizon if it does, in fact, support MoCA and if so how to make sure it is enabled on the device. If it supports MoCA then it will be compatible with the ECB6200 adapters.

  • Thanks for your very quick response.  It's appreciated.

    The TV One Mini does have MoCA capability.  As you can see from the attached image of the connected device status screen of my FIOS network, the Mini's (labeled Master Bedroom) connection type is listed as MoCA in both the schematic and the detail list.  This when the Mini is connected directly to the wall outlet.

    When I install the adapter, connected as previously described, I get the following screen:

    When I reboot the Mini it does not detect a coax connection from the adapter and boots to WiFi mode which, as I said earlier, is not acceptable in this location.

    Do I have a defective adapter?  The Mini is clearly not detecting signal from the coax output.

    Thanks for your time and continued interest.

  • Ralph,

    It is unlikely to be defective. I noticed in your first comment you said you were using the coax out port to the Tv One Mini. The coax out port does NOT pass MoCA signal only a/v at 750Mhz. Since the Tv One Mini is a MoCA device you would NOT install the ECB6200 at that location. It would be installed at the router location if your Fios Router is not MoCA capable. If you want to use both the Roku and Tv One Mini at that location then you will need a MoCA splitter installed.
