Maybe by "I don't have Wifi" he means he doesn't have a home network -- his PC is directly connected to his modem.

I don't think you need to delete the guide when you move. Just select a new lineup in Setup, and when it connects to the server it will replace the guide data.

Time to shut down this forum?

This forum gets almost no new traffic these days. I check in about once a week, and there's usually just 2-3 new posts. Planet Replay gets a little more traffic -- a few posts a day. It seems like...

I have two ReplayTV units, but I've never received any of these letters. Maybe it's because I bought them from a third-party reseller, not directly from ReplayTV/SonicBlue.

It doesn't look like it actually uses the MagicJack service, it just uses the hardware to emulate a phone line when connecting to your PC's modem.

I've also had the double/triple digit problem with a Motorola cable box in the past. Switching from 4476 to 0276 fixed it.

This may have been a legal necessity. If they mentioned anything about the bankruptcy before the public announcement it presumably would have been a violation of insider information laws.

My suspicion is that something changed in the way that TMS provides the data, and it's no longer compatible with the way DNNA's server retrieves it.

Anyway, I got both my ReplayTV's switched over...

I got a reply from someone at LaHo. He needed to fix something on their end. I did another net connect, then was able to select my cable provider.
