Dave,I am finding that after a power outage, the DirecTV STB will change its ip address and, therefore, MP is unable to change the channels.
Am I correct in this observation? How is this remedied? Thanks, Dave
This has nothing to do with MediaPortal or your STBs. My guess is that your STBs are set to get their IP addresses from DHCP, and if you have a typical home network configuration, your DHCP server is probably on your router and uses a non-persistent lease database, such that when it is power cycled it just starts assigning addresses from on a first come first served basis from its configured scope. My suggestion would be to either configure your STBs with static addresses, or perhaps even better, set up address reservations for them in your DHCP server so they get the same address every time.
