Thread: Networking problems but annoying ones...

    Networking problems but annoying ones...

    on the surface everything seems to work. Sort of. But if I ping my Tivo sometimes the ping works sometimes it times out. I can telnet in but it dies really quickly and sometimes it doesn't telnet in at all. TivoWebPlus is running but only sometimes do pages load. Has anyone encountered this before? Network card about to die? Hard Drive about to die? Something simpler?

    Am running a CacheCard in a Philips model.

    Are you running DHCP or fixed IP?

    How does TiVo physically connect to the outside world (what route do the cables take)?

    Is this a new setup or an existing one?

    If existing has anything else recently changed/added to your network?

    it's fixed IP, it's connected via Homeplug adapters to my router and nothing's changed recently. It just went a bit tits up sometime Monday by the looks of things, had a succesful call on Sunday afternoon but Monday night's call failed.

    I would suspect the homeplug before the TiVo's network card.

    Any chance of trying a long cable temporarily to see if it still plays up?

    This seems to have just cleared up itself... looks like it may have been related to an electrical storm last week possibly disturbing the home plugs but everything seems to be fine again now.

    Shame you couldn't pin it down, but glad its's working for you all the same.
