    I've had ongoing problems with one of my boxes losing all of the ondemand channels. A reboot usually solves the problem in a day or two. But it happens alot. Everything seems to be setup correctly. My other box has never had a problem with losing those channels.

    All of my network settings appear to be ok. Yes I am using a deca setup. No ethernet wires to any of my boxes. I do have my boxes manually assigned an ip address but that should not be a reason for the problem for just one box. No other device is given that ip address.

    Just curious about thing tho, does the deca unit itself need an ip address? It does have the MAC address listed on the label.

    Would help to know more info.
    You have a BB DECA?
    What receivers do you have?
    No, the DECAs don't need an IP address.
