    Not sure if my HR24 was the 12th [old eyes make it hard] but "yeah" the same run, and mine was first "environmental & usability tested".

    "Hey, Joe - stick this one in the freezer at 15ºF overnight and then plug it up. It'll be just like one stuck on an installer's truck in winter!" :grin:

    Mine was "Stress Rack Soak" - hope that doesn't mean run over-voltage for 48 hours while drenched in water . . . :eek: :lol:

    You know, I think the only thing left for me to try is hooking up one at a time... Cause I have tried everythgin else and they still arent; working.. I can get my h24 to say it is networked via coax, but still won;t connect to the interenet!

    I think the first thing they need to do to the software, sis when you select get connected, you only have 3 choices right now, wired, wireless, powerline... I think there needs to be a fourth, and call it coax or deca connected.. whatever they want to name it.. Anyhow, this option should force the units to look at only that connection....

    Are you using static IP? If so try putting in the DNS from your router int he DNS set of octets.

    I seem to remember that Carnival uses Directv and a gyro-stabilized pointing platform for their Western Hemisphere, U.S.-based cruises. They did when we were on board one of their ships in early 2005, anyway. :p

    OK, I connected my h and hr to my network, and all my other uniuts as well via ethernet cable last night, and everything for mrv worked fine on all of them (not counting the list bug, which has now bitten me 3 time on 2 boxes, and once on my other 4 each) so then I disconnected everything again, meaning that my other units where just hooked to a network switrch, and completekly isolated from everything else, no network and interenet connection at all.. Then I plugged my hr24 and h24 into the deca and so on again, and did some reset and reset everything on them and even typed in the ip addresses etc that had been asigned to them previously.. and still no go..



    I am getting the folling on my info screens on my H24...

    And when I go through the advanced screen on the h24 I get...

    I am getting the folling on my info screens on my H24... (before I had typed in the actual ip address etc that it was asigned when I did have it hooked up via ethernet last night)

    [​IMG]

    And when I go through the advanced screen on the h24 I get... ANd the fact its still trying to connect via Ethernet is bugging me, since its had restored defaults in the network done, as well as in the restart screen, and a reboot, and a reset evererything done since it was last hooked up via Ethernet cable!

    And what I would like to see is the option to hook up coax on this screen!

    Inkahauts,

    On you computer (assuming it is a PC), go to the comand prompt and type "IPconfig /all". Get the DNS shown there and plug it into the H24. See if that lets you connect to the internet.

    If you haven't tried it a menu reset might help get you going.

    My sticker says "Environmental and Operational Test", which could mean practically anything.
