I am confused about how to hook up a Mini to a Roamio Basic that will be used for only OTA.
My antenna drop goes from a Winegard LN-200 pre-amp to the associated powered amp and then to an 8 way splitter. My Roamio will be at the end of one of these coax runs while my Mini will be at the end of another one. The Roamio will be right next to my cable modem and Asus router, so hooking it up directly to Ethernet is the plan. What then do I need to get the Mini proper hard wired in?
From what I've read it seems like I need a MoCA box somewhere in the line, but I have concerns about the powered amplifier in the line. Then maybe a POE and maybe not.
Alternatively I could run an Ethernet line from my router to the Mini with some difficulty that I would like to avoid if possible.
