Thats a common myth.
If the circuits are all on the same consumer box, then generally they should work.

Not sure what you mean by a "thru-port" ?
The extender has an ethernet port on the side, which you would just connect to your tivo.

Btw, do you actually need an extender that does 5GHz ? (the one you linked does, hence is more expensive).
