I 'Banged My Head Against the Wall

') pointed to my "Server" (Printer, Files, MP3s, DVArchive). It took me QUITE some time to correlate the "Unable to Connect to Remote ReplayTV
" messages with a TIME problem.
Over the years, some of us make MANY changes to our setups, based on reading various posts on various forums; as long as everything is 'still
' working when you change something, you don't think anything about it; MONTHS / YEARS later, you really cannot remember WHAT you did WHERE - so, you have to START OVER and reconfigure EVERYTHING.
AFAIR, (R)emember, although WiRNS can 'replace / compliment/ enhance
' MANY DNNA functions (i.e. FILTER available channels; MAP available channels, etc...) and 'prevent
' software updates (i.e. a 55xx can act like a 5xxx), eventually it has to 'connect
' to verify a unit's Lifetime, or Monthly-Paid-Up subscription (Time will tell how ReplayTV units, *ESPECIALLY* MONTHLYs, react to this 'change
For a WiRNS User:
- How is the CLOCK currently updated?
- DNNA or WiRNS?
- Without a DNNA presence (after July 31, 2011), what (do you think / KNOW ) folks will see when they press the ZONES button on their remotes?
- Is there a separate CHANNELS file in WiRNS that folks could create today and save to allow them to operate their ReplayTV like a 'dumb' VCR (i.e. MANUAL Record) after July 31 WITHOUT using a 'Scraper'?
