I just had a Hopper and 2 Joeys installed with a HIC. I don't have ethernet to the Hopper; all access goes through the HIC. So far, it's been pretty nice and working great, but this morning, I had a weird anomaly. I have our bedroom TV set to turn on and the associated Joey set to auto-tune at 5am. Everything worked normally, but after about 10 minutes, I started experiencing extremely choppy audio and then a black screen. I powered the Joey off and back on - same thing. I went out to the Hopper and the channel was working fine. I looked at the broadband settings and all was ok. I did a reset for good measure and all status came back as OK and in green. I heard the Joey in the other room come back on and tune the channel. I went back in and everything appeared to be normal. Then I started getting choppy audio about every minute and then finally, a black screen again. I reset the broadband again, this time from the Joey. Everything came back with an OK status and in green. Still a black screen. After about 15 minutes, the Joey finally came back online and was fine for the rest of the morning news cast. Do you suppose this is a DHCP problem or is there a problem with the Hopper or Joey? For good measure, I did a factory reset on my router this morning and had to set everything back up from scratch. I also assigned a "static lease" to the Joeys and Hopper. This should mean that they will always grab the same IP, every time and the lease will never expire. Thoughts?
