1. I'm not using it actually. I have Gigabit Ethernet already in those locations. It was just for testing.
2. If I did use it, it'd likely be on coax not connected to Rogers cable. However, if I wanted to use the same lines where coax had active Rogers digital service, I'd put in a high pass filter to filter out the HPNA signals before they got out of the house, not just for the reasons you list, but also for security reasons. I believe the filters go for about 10 bucks.
3. What two way service for STBs does that reference mean, in the case of Rogers cable? (On demand? I don't use that.) As for DOCSIS, I don't have any active DOCSIS equipment in the house, but I do understand adding HPNA to the system can screw up things for Rogers and the neighbours. However, the filter would take care of that.
4. MoCa is the better solution in this context, but the reason I mentioned this is because there are a lot of us on Bell VDSL2, and the modems they provide already include HPNA support for free.
