So I've successfully changed one of my series 2 Dtivos (running 6.2) from dhcp to a static ip address because I was getting tired of my router randomly re-addressing my tivos.  The only problem is that, for some reason, my Tivo Desktop server is not seeing my tivo's new address.  I know it is locked onto my LAN at the address that I gave it because I can easily call up tivowebplus and/or telnet to it, but I cannot seem to get the tivo desktop server to see it- I am getting Tivo Name = (unknown) address in the Tivo Server Properties / Access Control listing.  Obviously, I cannot utilize MRV until the Tivo server and more importantly, the Tivo transfer service recognizes the address.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!


Now three Sammys (2 S4120R & 1 S4080R) upgraded with a little help from our friends at PTVupgrade, then Superpatched for MRV & HMO.
