    OK, so the monitor fails on my old PC so I get a new 22" widescreen Dell monitor that supports HDCP according to the tech specs and put it on my main PC. Alas, now the PC playback application (and upon checking) the Cyberlink advisor fails due to lack of HDCP. Any thoughts?

    Were you connected with a VGA cable before and DVI now? Is your video card HDCP-compliant? Which card do you have? What happens if you connect the new monitor up with the VGA cable?
    (of course using a VGA cable is not a solution since you want to get the most out of you monitor)

    It was the card. I've got a new one on order :)

    Thanks.

    With the HR21 in the mix and the fact it is upstairs, I see a run to CC to get another N game adapter.

    And while you're there might as well get that WRT600N dual-band router to take advantage of the dual-band capabilities of the WGA600Ns. ;)

    I agree. :) I have had zero issue so far with mine. It has been great and so has the WGA600N. I too need to pick up another WGA600N.

    Man, I'm having all kinds of issues with my 300N right now. As I type this I've bypassed the router completely because I keep getting kicked off. I got kicked off last night and couldn't come back.

    Meant to say goodbye but if I messed with the router any longer I was gonna put it through a wall.

    I get kicked off of the chat when using Firefox but IE is OK. Haven't figured it out yet.

    By any chance do you have UPnP turned on? If so turn it off.

    I haven't really played with it on my new router because I haven't needed too. I have everything working great with it off.

    But I did turned it on with my WRT54G that I replaced with the WRT600N. I was trying to get the POKEEYENOW to work with the WRT54G and the only way I could get it to work with the WRT54G was by turning it on but I kept losing interent connectivity with it on.

    I did do a little searching online and some ISP modems will cause you to have problems with your router if it is turned on (Comcast is one of them).

    Mike, will doing that affect my Slingbox, MediaShare, fortune cookies, and on Demand stuff?

    My modem is a SpeadStream DSL modem from SBC (AT&T)

    I have it turned off and my 3 HR20-700's and HR21-200 all work with DoD, MediaShare (Using WMP11), and fortunes great.

    I do have all of my units set using static IP addresses. They just seem to work better that way and there has been other reports of that. There was a report of that last night actually.

    For the fortunes I set it to manual with different ports for each unit and forward everything in the router.

    HR20 #1 192.168.1.230 (static IP) 27161 to 27162 (checked the box)
    HR20 #2 192.168.1.231 (static IP) 27163 to 27164 (checked the box)

    and so on for each unit.

    I'm set up with static as well along with manual port forwarding. I'll go ahead and kill it for a while and turn it back on if everything goes to hell.
