DVR and Wireless Receivers
I've had uVerse since 2007, and after the initial growing pains in my area, and old house, I found a combination where all three receivers, connected through ethernet ports on the RG, performed flawlessly.
Yesterday I had a new install at a new house and the technician said uVerse's go to plan these days was two wireless receivers and the hard wired DVR. My 3801 is connected over vDSL receiving 54mbps to the house. My VIP 2250 appears to operate normally. I can record three HD shows at the same time without a problem. Pause, rewind, playback, whether recording or not, works perfectly.
That cannot be said about the wirless receivers. The two wireless receivers are connected through the VAP 2500. If watching a recorded show the pause, rewind, FF, commercial skip, work with a small delay which is very manageable. Watching live shows with the above operations is also manageable. While the DVR is recording, I can change channels on the wireless receivers with no issues.
Disclaimer: I only watch and record HD shows.
Here is where things break down horribly. If I am recording even one show, forget about using pause, FF, rewind, and commercial skip on the wireless receivers. It doesn't matter if it is a live broadcast, a recorded show, even the show i'm recording live, or in playback mode. Going back 7 sec takes forever and then the stream never evens out. Same with FF and the 21 sec commercial skip. Using any feature other than just watching a live show or changing channels causes huge pauses before playback and then constant pause/play issues throughout the current stream. I can change channels and watch a new stream with no problems, until I try to pause, FF, rewind, etc.
Anyone have any ideas, answers? The wireless lights show paired, and the receivers show full reception. I have rebooted all equipment. My cummulative seconds w/ Errors is 10 over 24hrs, Corrected blocks are 49902 over 24hrs, and 66 Uncorrected Blocks over 24hrs. Actual time since last reboot is 8hrs, 46 minutes. The numbers I don't believer are out of band, but they are higher than I expected for a brand new install. All new equipment was installed yesterday.
I apologize if an answer is posted elsewhere as my googlefu is under the weather. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone else run into this issue? Is it standard fair?
If you need more info, please ask. Thank you.
