    I'm stumped on this one. I was having issues with connecting to the internet, so I started troubleshooting.

    I checked the WCCK lights and all were all green as should be. Reset just in case.
    HR24 wouldn't connect to the net via it's setup menu.
    Reset the HR24 and it connected.

    But I can't get to the WCCK setup menu at http://169.254.1.100:8080 anymore. Any ideas?

    Did the IP address change?

    It looks like the adapter gets its own IP address from your router.

    It starts with a "generic" IP address that you can use to access it before it gets configured, but after your DVR configured it, it pulled a new one.

    With mine, if I've reset it I find 192.168.1.123 is the default.
    It also has a secondary IP of 169.254.34.156

    Once it connects to my router it has:
    Bridge IP Address: 192.168.1.67
    secondary IP: 169.254.34.156

    Ring up the TV station to get your answer. Their number should be listed in the Erie phone book.

    Unless he thinks "WCCK" refers to the call letters of a TV station instead of "Wireless Cinema Connection Kit" :lol:

    And even then there is no TV station WCCK listed for Erie Pa. or anywhere else in the country.

    Yes and no.

    Yes because WCCK is a station in Erie Pennsylvania.
    No, not a he here.

    It used to be. Now it is a radio station in Kentucky.

    According to that Wikipedia entry, the call letters were only for a radio station in Erie, Pa. as well, not a TV station.

    So again, there is no evidence of a *TV station* WCCK present or past in Erie, Pa. or existing at any other place in the country that I can find.

    Nothing VOS; :grin:

    Just one of those typical OT detours a thread takes at times, triggered by a poster's earlier misunderstanding of "WCCK."

    In fact due to its frequent need I think the :backtotop icon should be in the top 15 short list to the right of the message box.
