Set-Top Box Questions

Greetings,

 

I have a wired UIW8001 and a wireless UIW4001. The UIW8001 shows as connected to my network, but the UIW4001 does not.

 

  1. Why doesn't the router see the wireless UIW4001? Does it connect directly to the wired UIW8001?
  2. Where are my recordings stored?
  3. Will I lose my recordings and/or settings if I unplug a box?

Thanks,

Shane.

1. Has your wireless box worked before or just setting it up? Follow this guide or here to pair the receiver. 
2. Recordings are stored on the PVRs encrypted hard drive.
3. Rebooting/unplugging the device won’t result in losing your recordings.

  1. The boxes were set up by the technician.
  2. You're saying that the recordings are stored on both boxes?
  3. Thanks.

Recordings are stored on the PVR. All other boxes communicate with the PVR “brain” for recording/playback.

Unplug/Plugin the modem followed by the PVR then wireless box. If the wireless box doesn’t sync when you reboot it as well perform the sync process in the documentation below.

I have two PVRs:

 

  • Wired UIW8001
  • Wireless UIW4001

Is it possible to find out where my recordings are stored?

 

Thanks,

UIW4001 does not have a Hard Disk Drive. The other device (UIW8001)  is the PVR. And yes, it should show on the home page of your router at 192.168.1.254
