OK, just got my trade-in 5040 tonight. I hooked it up and recorded a show just to be sure everything was working. Golden. Then I went in the next room where my other 5040 is to try this streaming out. UGH. It skips and hiccups like crazy. Definitely unwatchable. I'm using a Linksys 802.11b wireless network, the 5040's are literally about 40 feet from each other in adjoining rooms, and I stream from DVArchive to my 5040 in the living room all the time without a problem. Any idea what could be causing this?


NEXT problem... I opened up the 5040 to fix the fan noise. I moved the black wire to the power cable, as described in the posting . I've done this on my first 5040 and it worked like a charm. So I close the new one back up, go back into the bedroom, hook it up again and all I get is No Connection. I can't tune in any channels! If I turn off the RTV I can tune in all channels using the TVs built-in tuner. The TV is connected THROUGH the RTV. So the TV is getting the signal, but the RTV somehow is not. This worries me. Did I do something internally to screw that up? Everything else appears to be working fine. I played back that show I had recorded earlier and it played fine (remember, I already had a signal before opening up the box). I went through the setup and changed the inputs a couple time just to be sure, but it's definitely not getting a signal. Any clue what to do now?


Thanks for your help!!

You can try disabling WEP on your wireless gear to give you the maximum possible throughput. Do this at your own discretion, of course.

Yup . . . . streaming won't work for me over my D-Link 22 Mbps wireless links. And I'm using 256-bit encryption, which does slow it down by at least a third.


I can stream very reliably between the 5000 boxes that are in the same room and are hard-wired with CAT5 cables, however.


If you'll search this message board you will find items about successful streaming using G wireless gear.


Bye. :cool:
