And I have Live TV now in my office off the ETH, at least the activation/paring was painless.
I returned my other cable card to Comcast, wait time, about 10 minutes, I was dreading this trip, but it worked out.
So far, ETH is doing great, haven't recorded much, waiting for all the shows to come back this month. I had a couple of hick ups, but one has me scratching my head, twice one of my pc's had pixilated images, but the other two PC's did not, reboot of the eth resolved the problem. I was using a crappy old Cat5 cable when doing my initial testing. Figured that might have been part of the issue, but I was scratching my head as to why it only happened on PC.
Question, because of all the stupid wall wart plugs, I couldn't plug my eth into my UPS, so, what do you guys think about plugging something like this into the UPS, http://www.amazon.com/APC-P6GC-Power-Saving-Essential-SurgeArrest/dp/B002K8U0WI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1389016136&sr=8-4&keywords=power+strip+timer
. I only want to plug in my ETH, and I hope to be able to set a timer on the power strip to essentially reboot the eth once a week. I'll try to find a non surge version of the power strip, as I've read that should be ok, but I need to find one with a timer.
other wise, I'll just plug the timer directly into the wall receptacle.
