HD HomeRun and PS3 and Fios

Hi,
I started the BETA today and so far so good. A few reboots on both PS3 and HD Home Run. reboot Actiontec REV I.
Hopefully i can lose another Box soon. I have yet to see if I can record etc. Show up as Media server and is much more responsive than XBOX 360
Thx
Yac

You referring to the new firmware for the HDHomerun that was supposed to enable DLNA support?

Yes.. Working well for me. I only had an hour to monitor it will follow up in the next few days.
So far only 1 DLNA hooked up and running.
Mod you can lock this up .I'll find a new thread to put feedback in in appropriate section. As this is not truly a FIOS forum item.. It just works well with it.... so far

I hope the new Actiontec firmware does not give me nightmares like it did a few days ago with my sons Xbox.

I use the Prime also, but looking around there site is says one has to sign up as a "beta tester" to DL the DLNA firmware. Where does on sign up? Thanks.

Any feedback you guys can give would be awesome.. I've been looking at replacing my STB with a cablecard tuner/wmc, but just can't pull the trigger.

I'm always interested in other options than STBs and would like to hear users experiences.

You don't necesarilly need the DNLA firmware to achieve a similar result. The XBox works as a good extender.

Hi,
I have an email and will forward the link. It works well, but does not have a "guide".
I had many issues with the Xbox as it would "time out " and I would have to restart. The PS3 and othe DNLA devices are on the list but the PS3 works well. It is more like a file folder and each file AKA Channel is chosen.

It is not difficult at all but a "front end guide" would work wonders. like the xbox.

Im still hesitating to do the upgrade yet. I need stability before i take the dive.

I also read that many samsung tv's that support DLNA works on this setup. Sounds like a good option for those looking to rid some boxes.

Don't know if you are aware of this, posted in another thread and then I posted it at Magic Jack as I had issues with my MJ+, I keep UPNP on and the Homerun machine works great.

here is the hidden page link incase someone comes asking about Verizon Actiontec REV I and MJ+

»192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=900

this is for UPNP and

»192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=6059

this one is for IGMP some folks have issues with this setting and OTHER network apps

Thx I got those. So far I am on the 3rd Beta and it is slowly improving on appliances like Blu- Ray Disc players, App/Internet Ready TVS.
I want to get rid of theses boxes.. way too expensive. I'll write a paper for Karl in the next few days when I get some free time . Seems very promising.

What is this magic you're doing on your PS3? I'd like to do this too.

By any chance have you had issues with receiving USA-HD (550) since upgrading to the beta firmware? I upgraded and for the past week have been going back and forth trying to figure out why I am no longer subscribed to that channel even tho channel 50 works fine and it worked before upgrading the firmware.

Harley -- any idea if this works with the Logitech Revue (Google TV box that has DLNA functionality)? I have a couple of them sitting around, would allow me to get rid of a box or two if it actually worked with them...

I saw where VZ most have switched or killed some of their QUAM stuff, anyways, when I installed the latest beta firmware and software, I had to go into the gui install and click on scan channels, it takes abit, but then it will find where all the channels are on now.

not sure if it's the new firmware or VZ to be fair. but re-scanning will fix the issues as for all the game boxes in the house just make sure UPNP is turned on, no majik needed.
