Pooper - you seem to know your stuff so hoping you can share your knowledge ...
I had a tech come out today to install TiVo. Seemed like a nice young guy who knew his stuff. Basic install was straight forward initially. The issue is I already have a network set up with router, switch and wireless router. My security system and security cameras are all connected to my primary router with customized settings (DDNS and Port Forwarding). The Arris (TiVo router) doesn't seem to have as much flexibility as my Linksys router, so we couldn't replicate my router settings. This means I can't access my security system or cameras remotely which is a show stopper.
He called Tech Support, wondering whether he could put the Arris in "bridge" mode. They said no. Cogeco will not support this set up. We tried it anyway, and couldn't seem to get an internet connection. Everything else worked.
Unfortunately, after 3 hours of tinkering, and getting bounced from one tech to another, we gave up. He re-installed my old clunky hardware. I saw the interface in action and it is slick! I want TiVo!!!
Interested to hear if someone has a work around for my dilemna?
