Internet connection made simple
Posted 07 July 2010 - 06:37 PM
Ordered the power supply from Solid Signal along with a "green label" splitter and finally got around to hooking it up today. I hooked it all up and went to Network and tested the connection. It said I was connected. I then did the repeat network connection (or whatever it said) and the next thing I know I've got a ton of on demand stuff in my guide but maybe it's been there all along because I never looked. It was almost to simple. But then again I haven't tried to download anything yet but probably will later tonight. That will be the true test.
One question. What are Network Services? I get a <202> error when I click on that.

The advice from VeryOldSchool and others is that as long as your functions all work don't worry about the Network Services error.
MRV works. I'll try to download an On Demand program later tonight to make sure that's working properly. Don't know what all the TV apps are but right now implementing that is not high on my list of priorities.
