said by shredhead :No, the STBs do not use static IP addresses. If you did not reboot (power cycle) them, they would have retained their previous DHCP addresses until the DHCP lease expired.
I'm not sure why but the STB's are static addresses.
said by shredhead :Yes, it does matter. If you reboot the STBs, they will request a new DHCP lease. If they are not able to obtain a DHCP lease, VOD and guide data updates will not function.
Maybe if the STBs reboot they will flip back to DHCP on their own. It doesn't matter.
said by shredhead :That is a disadvantage of option #6 which is documented in the FAQ.
But I have no remote access to the DVR.
