My first Replay had a similar problem. After a power outage, it would boot up but could not detect any video (on either input or the tuner). Disconnecting power for 1 second would fix it until next...

Cable here changed. Everything digital & encrypted (and HD if available). The SD output of the box was letterboxed (inappropriately here, since I have a wide-screen TV). I want to use a simple HDMI...

I would prefer to use WiRNS, which affects all Replays. I have tried various arrangements of "usb_enumerate" (or all 4 commands) in the shellcmds file. None of these are working, and they keep the...

USB Power

Does anybody here know how to activate the USB port (power only) on a Replay? I think I saw a registry setting but can't find it.

I know about the WiRNS shellcmds file.

Your router maintains various tables, including one that lists all IP addresses given out and the associated MAC addresses. A MAC address looks like 12:3B:FF:6C:72:81. However, you don't need this...

Your new computer (running WiRNS) has the same IP but a different hardware (MAC) address. This may confuse one or more of your network switches. Reset then (remove power for a second and reconnect...

power outage changes Replay settings

We had a short (44 min) power outage this morning. One of my Replays (the one connected to a cable box) stopped recording shows. The shows would appear in the Replay guide but blank with the message...

No digital, but Replay does work with wide screens. If the video going in is 16*9, and you connect a 16*9 TV to the output, you'll get the right aspect ratio.

I still have a 5-1/4 floppy in one computer. I don't know it if works, since it hasn't been used recently. Perhaps if I want to look at the old DOS 2.11 disk.

I used the 3-1/2 floppy when I set up...

I've been using a USB-ATA (IDE) adapter for years. It makes connecting a Replay drive to a PC much easier, (it doesn't matter what drive interface your PC has). No opening the PC case. No rebooting...

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

That sounds good. Perhaps if WiRNS was in Java, like DVArchive is.

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.

Running a PC all the time just to use WiRNS is wasteful.

One alternative is having the PC also do something useful during that time.

Mine is doing several things, including BOINC...
