Just wanted to see if anyone has any advice: I'm on the 250 Pure Fibre in Vernon, and am having quite a few issues over the last couple of months. At first, everything was good, but certain things seem to keep popping up now -
My PVR recordings just aren't working right - quite often, they are dropping out requiring me to restart the box to even get back to the menues - watching a program whilst it's recording is generating error messages some of the times, sometimes now.
My wired internet is great, but I'm having isuses with my wireless - again, only at times - my 2.4g won't recognize my password at all, but only some of the times, other times it works fine - I've checked and re-checked the password and haven't changed it, but I keep getting 'authentication error' My 5g works for the most part, but once or twice a week I'm getting 'failed to obtain IP address' issues for awhile, but then it starts to work fine again. I've tried in all different locations in my house, including standing right next to the modem/router.
Does this sound like it could be a hardware issue to anyone, as the problems are varied and happen only sometimes, but then other times, it's just fine?
Thanks very much for reading!
Thank you kindly for the link - I'll do some reading. As for the PVR issues - I'm finding that during playback mainly, but occasionally during recording too, it will pop up an error screen with a 'client initialization error' - which seems to be related to the internet connection. At that point, I have to restart the DVR function in order to get back to the main screen. I also notice that the recording start over during this - you cannot continue from the point you were at in the program. This usually happens many times in a row until I give up trying to watch the program and wait a day or so, and it's fine. I am not getting missed or skipped content even when it errors out during recording.
Just to add to the interesting times - now all the PVRs in my house ( three of them ) will not show my recorded shows, but does show that the memory is used that holds them. I also recorded a new show last night after the other disappeared, and it's not showing on the list either.
