sorry for the newbie question but what is a powerline connection?
It's an adapter that plugs into a wall outlet and provides an ethernet connection via your homes power wiring to another powerline adapter in another outlet. How well they work depends on the path of the signal through your wiring and what other devices are connected on the circuits. I tried using them for MRV, to one bedroom it worked fairly well, to another not at all.
yeah thanks, I looked it up and googled it, there is one called hercules that seems to work fairly well, I will look into that as soon I get the darn upgrade on my H21
Just make sure that you can return it for a refund if it doesn't work.
I'm in Chandler.
Has anyone in CA, specifically the Bay area recieved the firmware update? I have the MVR feature available on the HD DVR but the firmware has not be loaded to my H23/600 reciever. Is there a way to force the upadte of the firmware?
I'm in the Bay Area and still don't have an MRV firmware version on either of my H21-200s.. Trying a forced download today didn't help.
Forced a download this morning at 6:30AM in Staten Island, NY. New version downloaded. Now running 0x43A8. The info section showed no update scheduled before I forced the download on two H2-100's. MRV is up and working perfectly with 100MB ethernet on both units.
I hate to nitpick but reading this thread and seeing this is driving me nuts...
It's M-R-V NOT MVR.
Was encouraged by all these posts of folks getting the new SW. Forced a DL'd yet again...still 434E...oh well.
Multiple Reentry Vehicle, not Multiple Vehicle Reentry? :shrug:
Or Motor Vehicle Report is another.
Okay, so I see all this new software, so I thought I would force the new download. It said I have new software, but what showed up was 0x3ae....what? It was on my HR20-700. Any news on this?
You have downloaded an unstable test version and really unless you want the headaches, redownload tomorrow when the older National release is back in the stream.
Then you can force the newer national release [very] early Monday morning.
I've had two lockup this morning testing this release, so I don't suggest normal users keep/run it.
How early on Monday can I download the newest software?
"If" they start it like this week, they put it in the stream [I think Midnight, but haven't checked] and pull it at 7 AM EST. Since the download takes a while, I'd start at 6 AM, so it's there long enough to complete.
thanks so much for the help.
By the way, can I force my H21-200 the same way? I tried the 02468 and it didn't work/
Yep, they all work the same, but "timing" seems to be everything.
I wait for the "hello" screen to first show and the press/wait about half a sec/ press/wait/etc.
I tried again and it is now working, but getting 0x43ae, so must be the non-national release. I would assume again early monday I can get the regular national release?
That version will be pulled in about 3 hours, then the older national will be streaming, so tomorrow morning [Sun] you can get the National again.
Monday early should be the newer national.
