I've been reading through as many posts as possible to see if anyone has the same issue as me, and it seems some are similar, but not completely the same.
My issue is i have 2 HR24's with a CCK, set up for the whole home viewing. Every time there is a firmware update from DTV, the two receivers no longer are connected and i cannot watch the playlist from the other DVR. One still shows it is connected to the internet, the other says it isn't and there is no cable? I don't know why, since it had been connected just fine, via coax, prior to the update.
The first few times this happened, i was able to get them reconnected by doing a red button reset on both machines at the same time. This worked great...until this time. Now they are not reconnecting again.
I tried to assign a static ip, using the suggestion and following the link from page 1, but this didn't work, the receiver that says it isn't connected still cant find the connection.
Any ideas??? Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, but i did search quite a bit before posting.
