Aw, hell. Well the protection plan folks were spectacularly unhelpful today. The best they could suggest was to make sure I had the latest software in the receivers. As it turns out, I didn't. Forced a download to the most recent and it made no difference whatsoever. The first time the video froze, I yanked the Ethernet cable to the CCK. Video immediately restarted and has been stable since.
So....would anyone care to give me a quick lesson on setting static IPs on each of my two HR24s? Frankly, I've never done this before and would like to give it a shot before popping for a new router.
CCK is not recommended for HR24's because it has deca built in so that's why you're getting freezes unless for mrv through coax connection not ethernet (i think that's what i read in the manual) As for static ip did you see the merg's link in post 15#
