    Hi, I have Gigablue UE 800 with gift working well over wan on home network. I have second box Octagon sf8 which is on same network on lan connection. I got second gift for the Octagon recently, works well but I noticed from watching on the main box (Gigablue) it froze completely, I read to disconnect the other box from the network, did so and the Gigablue worked again. This has happened 3-4 tims. Is there anything that I can do for the two boxes to work together on the same network ?

    make sure they both have different lines or multiroom from provider is allowed for more than 2 tuners.
    there should be no issues having 5 boxes even on home network on lan connections,not up on plugging into wan for 800.

    Thanks, both lines are from 2 separate providers, so no multi room just 2 completely different providers. Didn't think it would be issue.

    Make sure they both have different internet addresses or connections on the router and a different line. Sounds like they are conflicting.

    Yes both have unique ip addresses etc. There's a conflict alright, the line providers can't/won't help.

    have you set up any port forwarding - whats your ISP ? I suspect this is a NAT'ing issue

    Hard wired being fine and the wifi being the issue, is this correct?

    Hi, that is what it seems like at the moment. WiFi is the one freezing.
