Even less viewers than they might have had due to some people disliking the update so much they went to the trouble to block the update site. I was interested in the "linear" channels, but not enough...

E*/CM releases v108. Works great. Not perfect, but everybody's more-or-less mostly happy.

I've been thinking of either blocking...

You haven't done it correctly. 192.168.0.1 is almost certainly your local network's (inside) Internet gateway address. That is to say: The network address through which everything must pass to get...

I thought I had that saved, somewhere, but apparently not. Could I get a copy of that from you, just in case?

I'm confused. The DVR+ has a S/PDIF TOSLINK output and your receiver has S/PDIF TOSLINK inputs. What is the problem?

In this context the distinction is inconsequential. The wireless device doesn't care whether it's an AP or WiFi router that's (not) broadcasting an SSID.
