Great product with clear and simple setup instructions

Summary: The MCAB1001 adapter kit turned up, well packaged. Opening the box revealed a single two-sided sheet of instructions, with informative step-by-step guides. I managed to add the first adapter in my office, where the cable modem is attached with a minimum amount of network downtime. The instructions clearly state that you do not need to power down the cable modem or the router and it is correct.
Works - But Point-to-Point (just Coax with no TV/Internet) setup NOT intuitive

Summary: I have a large home that has both CAT5 and standard RG-6 (Coax Cable) that was installed when the house was built in the early 2000's. Recently, I switched over to a whole-house Windows Media Center using an InfiniTV PCI card in one of my PC's. Thus, the COAX in my house is no longer carrying TV signal (everything video is now over IP) as it is split at the box; one inbound line for TV (which now goes directly into my PC and then terminates) and one to my cable modem.
Summary: Great solution but you may want to come up to speed on how your cable provider has your coax cable hooked up. If you have several televisions it is very likely that the cable company has installed an amplifier to boost the signal as it enters your home. The MoCA adapters cannot send a signal through these types of signal amps. If you have an amp be prepared to get your cable company involved. They will have to split a line to bypass the amp before the adapters will work.
Summary: Like many fellow reviewers, I have been looking for a reliable way to extend my home network to my TV and to my den with good data rate. I have 802.11g wireless router upstairs but the signal strength is marginal downstairs. The connection get dropped whenever someone uses the microwave. That translates to frozen video on my TV and broken VPN connection (which requires a couple minutes to reestablish).
Summary: Ok, this is for all the ReplayTV users out there looking to stream their 4000 series DVRs. Yes, the ReplayTV is an older technology, but some of us still use it faithfully. I have 4 of them in my house and use them all the time. I have previously reviewed a 200Mbps or "HD" powerline product from Netgear. Unfortunately it couldn't handle the basic task of streaming my REGULAR DEFINITION tv into my Gigabit network, to other rooms in my house.
