    Streambaby was working fine with my old Westell modem and Linksys wireless router. This week I installed the new Verizon D-Link 2750-B modem router. Getting this thing to work with the internet is a story in itself, involving many hour of calls to Verizon tech support in India, I have just spent another several hours trying to get Streambaby to work with the new router by adding firewall rules etc. Has anyone configured this modem to work with Strembaby. :mad:

    Do any other TiVo-related programs work, like TiVo Desktop? You might need to enable "multicast pass-thru" on your new router in order for Bonjour traffic to work.

    What problem are you having? My guess is it's not even showing up on your TiVo, right?

    That's right. It's definitely not showing up in the Tivo. I turned off the wireless entry in the Verizon modem and set up a bridge with my old Linksys modem. Streambaby worked fine, so the problem is with the Verizon modem. There are three multicast settings, IGMPv2, v2, and v3, Which one I choose makes no difference.

    Looking at some 2750 manuals on the internet there should be a "LAN to LAN multicast enable" setting somewhere.

    Your TiVo and PC are on the same subnet still, right?

    There is no LAN to LAN or similar multicast option on any menu. The only thing relevant is the abovementioned IGMP protocols.

    Here's the manual for your device:

    http://www.dlink.com/us/en/business...DSL/DSL_2750B/Manual/DSL_2750B_Manual_US.ashx

    I see two different places where IGMP (internet group management policy, which is apparently a subset of multicast) is mentioned:

    1. Under the My Network tab, then LAN, then Routing tab: "Multicast - IGMP Proxy Internal." From what I can tell, this should be checked (not sure if the version in the dropdown makes a difference).

    2. On the System tab, then Routing, there is an IGMP Group that should be enabled.

    I really appreciate your time with this. All those settings are turned on. Plus I have opened all ports between the PC and the Tivo. Still no Streambaby in the menu.

    Hmm. Maybe install TiVo Desktop and see if that works? That would at least eliminate the router/PC as the problem and maybe point to something with streambaby.

    The router is the problem. I turned off Wireless on my D-Link and set up my old wireless Linksys router. Everything worked fine (for a while). Then the Linksys had problems getting an ip number from the D-Link and stopped working.

    If you're going to use your old router as a wireless AP, you'll probably need to change a few more settings so it's not acting as a router (since your D-Link will be doing that). Assign a static IP address to the Linksys and still let the D-Link pass out IP addresses normally. The Linksys will just be an access point.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice. The router kept on acting flaky, so I bought a Roku HD from Amazon and set it up with the Plex server software. Setup was pretty easy. The picture on my tv is terrific. It astonishes me that both Roku and Plex make it through my D-Link router without a hitch and streambaby just fails no matter what I do.

    Well, my guess is that the Roku and Plex aren't using multicast for discovery. :rolleyes:
