But what you're describing is exactly what happens when interference and WiFi. I'm not saying that is the problem, I'm just suggesting to try it to eliminate it from being a possibility. What you say above doesn't eliminate that it's an issue. The HDHR is wired only. So it it's plugged in, of course it's going to work when the laptop's WiFI is not there. But plugging in the WiFi adapter or HDHR and you lose your WiFI connection, makes it a possibility. Are you having the same problem if you connect your laptop via ethernet cable; I'm assuming it has a port. I think this scenario isn't likely, but it's still possible.
I also agree that you could be having an IP conflict. If you're using any kind of static IPs, just make sure it's outside the DHCP range; you can find and change this in your router. You may have to see if your router gives you a DHCP client list. Do you have any other computer connected to your LAN? It may be a good idea to look router settings using it with the laptop not connected and see that the IP the HDHR is pulling. Then you can just connect laptop and see what's it's pulling; you can do the laptop's IP on the laptop by looking in network details. If they're the same, you may be able to have both connected and just using WIndows repair option. I've had luck with it in the past clearing IPs and pulling a new one.
Nnnetheless, it's sounds more then likely your issue lies in you home network. The worse thing the HDHR does is not release a turner; just use the QuickTV and it can override and release it. But that problem doesn't occur very often in my experience.
And just so show I have a slight clue:
This is my home network. The black PC is my router and hardware firewall. The three "routers" are wireless access points. The black shelf is hold my HDRH3CC. You can see my VOIP adapter, wireless print server, modem, subwoofer, UPC battery backup with extended battery, and paper shredder. It's way more complicated than it needs to be for home usage.
