A phone plug (6P4C) will fit into an ethernet jack (8P8C). The shape of the connector centers it, phone pins 1-6 are connected to ethernet pins 2-7. Since the phone may only be using the center pins...

The last time I used wireless phone jacks (that plug into electric outlets), they worked poorly (dialtone sounded strange and I never got a connection). I think it has a lot to do with the wiring....

I have had WiRNS3 on a computer using Windows 7 for 4 years. They (it and the 2020) are in different rooms, for different reasons. I already have ethernet to both rooms, but would have to run an...

Since I had an older computer with floppy drive and RS232 ports, and a RS232 modem I used freesco 0.3.2 directly. No Windows. No VM. It works well and there was no problem getting a timer to start...

The router configutation I was talking about fixes your local DNS so every device on your network requesting an address for the "replaytv.net" domain will get the WiRNS IP rather than an internet IP...

AFAIK, many routers don't allow modifying DNS. On mine, I have the alternate firmware called DD-WRT (dd-wrt.com) which does allow this (I previously used Tomato, which did too). The website tells...

I haven't tried this yet, but how about setting DNS on your router to use WiRNS? Then you wouldn't need to change the Replay's network settings. Note that to prevent an infinite loop, WiRNS needs to...

I wish someone would sell a simple device to replace the computer, modem, and line simulator in a freesco system, but there's probably too little demand.

Ebay lists a 4080 for $25 (shown with...

That may have happened. Hyperterminal asks for a rate at startup. I don't remember what it was the first time, but I tried it again and made sure to set to 57600. The Replay now shows:

On Windows (HyperTerminal), I get

CONNECT 14400
followed by a little garbage and a quick disconnect.

It's still faster than with DNNA. Maybe this Replay has always been slow.

That was a suggestion.

What I'd really like is to be able to arrange the Replays in the order I choose, without playing games with the sorting. For one thing, I use a lot of JIT recordings and...

I considered mine "useless" because I could use one of the 5xxx units. However, maybe I'll keep it around in case of one of those 'corporate paranoia' problems.

Rhe Replay will not record HD. However, you still can use it with widescreen (16*9). It doesn't seem to know how wide the picture is.

This works well with a modern TV.

That was hard to find, but when I did a 2-4-3-Zones-Toggle Clock it showed "11/12/19..". I suppose it's 1999.
