It works fine for a short period of time. However, after 4 or 5 days, I notice that my programming has not updated and I check to see what is wrong. It says that my ethernet cable is unplugged -- but it is not! It is still firmly connected and I have not done anything with the system.
I go to "replug" the ethernet connection and it works again.
Specs: Tivo Series 3
Router: Apple Airport Extreme
Cabling: Cat 5e
Anyone have any suggestions on how to stop this annoying problem?
If you have the Tivo set up to use DHCP to get an IP address, try switching it to use a fixed IP address. I have one S3HD box that is finicky that way. In my case it just plain refused to communicate until I put in a fixed IP address.
