Before I had cable internet, I used to use a network router with a dialup modem. It would recognize when a network device was trying to access the internet, and dial up. This didn't work very well...

first, You probably don't mean "wifi" here, but networking. Wifi is wireless, and usually an inferior network.

second, a Replay will not record from the tuner input without a guide (you don't have...

I started using WiRNS all the time in 2011, and found that I really like being more in control of the Replays. Also, I get much more recorded stuff that I want now that I have global (across multiple...

Yes, I do that. Sorry I forgot to mention that detail. Older software could be the cause of the problem. The old HD had gone bad.

I do set an IP, but not on the Replay. I prefer to leave that as...

That's where I got mine. It took nothing special to get it activated. However, my network is set up so DNS returns the WiRNS IP for any ".replaytv.net" requests. I would have thought it would still...

I got a "new" Replay less than a month ago. I connected it to WiRNS and had no problem activating it. 4-1-1-Zones shows ISC: 10/1/2015.

If you have WiRNS, you can enable Commercial Advance and Internet Video Sharing (does LaHo do this?).

However, the latest software from Replay would not allow it with the 55xx. You can get around...

I started in 1999 too (with one of the first 2020). I didn't use WiRNS much until the summer of 2011. Now I wish I had started earlier, since it contains a feature I wished the Replays had for almost...

The mgetty I got defaulted to PHONESIM=y, so I never had to edit it. I think it was an older version.

I seem to remember that WiRNS should work with Windows 98 or ME. An older computer could be better with one of those instead of a later Windows.

I would expect it to be associsted with activation, rather than purchase. I still have 3 activated units and aren't even expecting any of those letters.
