The VAPs are not that close to the modem (different floors), and yes, there are 2, just as you diagrammed.
I will move them out from behind the TV, to see if that makes a difference, but they canít go far because of the network cables. Also, the VAP thatís connected to the PVR, should I move it closer to the PVR (i.e. down a shelf?) or farther away?
New, bizarre, symptom: last night, there were 4 recordings scheduled and a couple were concurrent. I was watching a recorded program through the Fibe app (which doesnít use the PVRís version) and saw that there were 3 in progress (as per the app). I decided it was a good time to test the ďwatch live tv versionĒ of same show, so turned on tv, went to recordings to see what was on the go, and... there were NO new recordings showing. The 3 that showed up on Fibe app, didnít show on PVR! Until this morning. WTF? It was recording, but it didnít know it? Or display that it was? Usually you see the show even if itís recording ďin progressĒ. This is the only time thatís happened. Today it was taping 1 show, and it showed in the Recordings list even though it was still in progress. Weird
Of course last nightís were all pixelated/choppy. BUT, I did catch the live version of one of the 3 mystery recordings, and the live version was CLEAN whereas the recording was a mess. Even found the same spots of the episode. So, live=fine, recordings=pixelated.
