I've been trying unsuccessfully for several days to get guide information into my 4000. Recently, I switched my DSL service, but for several weeks I will be without any DSL service. I figured it would be easy to use something like Internet Connection Sharing, but I can't seem to get that to work. I have searched around here and several other places, but can not seem to get a configuration that works with the 4000. I have successfully connected 2 computers together with a crossover CAT-5 cable, but I can not get the same results with a computer and the 4000. Here is what I have:


-CAT-5 Crossover cable

-Windows 2000 PC with modem and network card

-Windows 98 PC with a network card, no modem.

-Linksys Wireless DSL Router with 4 port switch (BEFW11S4)

-2 USB wireless network adapters (one for each pc)

-Compuserve Dial-up account.


I believe part of the problem is with Compuserve, but it's the only way I can access the internet until my DSL is back up. I don't really care whether I need to manually connect to the internet and change the network information around every week since this is only a temporary solution.


Sonic-Blue tech support was basically useless. However, they did give me a back-door solution to use the modem, but I would have to reset the 4000 and lose all my shows I have recorded. I was hoping to give this a try before going there.

Close JTL, but here is a copy of the back-door solution Sonic-Blue sent:


Suggested he do a 777 replay zones to

restore to factory defaults. Then at beginning of setup press 765

Replay

zones and choose a modem option to connect. This will allow 12 days of

channel guide to be downloaded. Will need to manually connect each time

to get the channel guide.


Resolution:


Solution: 243, Net Connect.


Steps:

Please exit all menus and return to Live tv before proceeding.


1) Press 243 ReplayZones.

2) Select 'Net Connect' from the on-screen menu.

ReplayTV will now connect to the ReplayTV Servers to download software

or channel guide updates. You may need to perform this procedure

multiple

times over several days before the software update will be complete.

You

might need to unplug the unit for 5 - 10 minutes before connecting to

force a software update.

It would be really nice if there is a way to use the modem without having to reset to factory default.
