Came back to D* after 2 1/2 years. Got an HR34, a DECA box and an H25. Can't see the HR34 on the iPad. Looked at the router to verify network ip. The Mac address of the hd34 shows up twice! Once as the expected 192.168.1.xxx and again as 169.254.xxx.xxx. On the hd34 advanced network setup page this is listed as the local-link. Did a Whois lookup and read that this is in a range reserved for, uh, local-links. Set Mac address to a static ip in the 192.168.1.xxx range where the iPad and H25 reside. The 169.... Still shows up, the iPad still can't find the HR34. Another probably related issue: the h25 can see a recorded show on the hr34 but when I try to play it back I get a no video or audio packets received message. Another issue: in advanced network page, Network services wouldn't start in auto. Set it manual forwarded the ports in the router (from where to where?) and the services say they start but fail a connection test. If I put them back to auto they won't even start. Don't know what "network services" are. Need some help, please?
