Hi guys, So I got a new modem/router and am trying to set up my HD HomeRun to run wirelessly (yes, I know its limitations compared to streaming TV wired Wink).. I have connected the HDHR to a Wireless client (one of those 5-in-1 devices - Router, AP, Repeater, Bridge and Client) through ethernet and have configured the Wireless client device to connect to my router. All is fine there I suspect..

Anyway, then I open the HDHomeRun Setup program and it detects 2 tuners after showing Detecting HomeRun Tuners, then checking UPnP. But when I go to the "Digital Antenna" tab at the top and click on a channel to play, it comes up with ERROR: Device not found!
I rescan the channels etc, but still comes up with this error. I suspect it may have something to do with the firewall so I have Port forwarded the required ports. (An update of the ports would be appreciated please?)

Anyone have a solution to this?

Thanks in advance!

By the way, the modem/router is a Netgear DGND3700 (v2).

Plug the HDHomerun via ethernet first. Does it work?

If you are in the same LAN there's no need to "forward ports" as the IP address will be visible and everything should pass through.

If you are using a third party software firewall you should ALLOW the HDHomerun IP address in your PC. The best thing is to configure DHCP to reserve the address for that specific MAC so it always get the same one.

And you probably going to have a very bad time trying to play HD programs from a wireless connection anyway. It will stop, start, show pixelation, drop frames and so on. Don't do it.

Are you running a full L2 WDS wireless setup or just a basic AP / Station setup that doesn't support L2 traffic?

My pick would be b)

computer. But now it is connected through to the router via a wireless client. I can't have it connected directly to the router unless I do not want internet. (No phone jack anywhere close to a TV jack.)

You would need to check with the hardware you're using - I can't give you an answer but would be 99.9% certain that it's the issue.

Explaining why would take me half an hour to explain to you Ethernet works, but typically wireless bridges weren't historically designed to bridge L2 traffic. You need to use a full WDS bridge mode to bridge L2 traffic.

Hi, it is working now.. Don't ask me how, but it is.. Thanks anyway.. and Freitasm, reading up on old topics, I see you are using HD HomeRun with your Dell Zino HD and also viewing from your office laptop? Is your house all wired up with jacks at each location?

Yes, with a couple of gigabit switches around. Would play HD over wireless. Just bad idea.
