    Hi all.

    I am changing ISP and so whereas I once had a static IP address I will now have a dynamic IP address.

    I am running a TiVo which downloads EPG data over broadband and also runs TiVo Web, however, it was a long time ago that I installed them and I have forgotten the technical gubbins which I went through at the time. My question is whether either the programme download or the TiVo Web is going to experience difficulties given a changed IP address?

    The TiVo Web is firewalled and so not publicly accessible.

    Thanks for advice.

    Neither should have problems.

    If you want to access tivoweb from the Internet though, you'll need to use something like dyndns.

    If you're not wanting to access the TiVo from outside your network then your internet IP address doesn't matter.

    If you do want external access it can be done for free using DynDNS and a script running on your Tivo (i.e. without your router directly supporting DynDNS).
    Needs a few utilities but all the leg work has been done.
