please explain " left arrow "

is that the ' <<  '     

universally known as reverse 

vs  the fast forward or " >> "

 

1.  can the " ok " button be used as a point of reference...

 

2. or the pause button ... i.e.  " >ll  "

 

3. or microphone button 

 

THERE IS AN ' arrow ' pointing towards the left side away from a button where the word " LAST " is in caps

 

help.. I am paying to much to support Fios and Verizon.

my $249 /M bill pays for and subsidizes GRAND THEFT PAYROLL....

they take big paychecks and cannot fix this **bleep**


Left arrow would be the left side of the ring around the OK button. Sorry for the confusion. The Mini HAS to see the hidden network to get data, that's why changing the network settings on the box allow you to use a different router or network.

I was able to get into the diagnostic and change the wireless netowrk without a problem. However, the box does not work - I get no service on it. Do I need to change anything from any of the main boxes (not the mini)? As for now, seems I am stuck in needing a coax cable run to every box. I recently set up a third party mesh network (eero) and disabled the wireless network from the quantum gateway router. ANy help is greatly appreciated.

I believe you need to change the network on the VMS too.

Forget my question above n what is a VMS. Figured out myself. I have a third party EERO mesh router as well, and my VMS sub does indicate the correct wifi settings for internet connection for other devices. However following the above procedures for my mini, I went into network manual connections entered the wifi SSID name and mini response was “SSID name does not exist.”  Help!

I'm not the best person to answer, but I believe you have to change the network settings on the main(VMS) box first, disconnect, then re-connect the mini for it to recognize the new network. Again, I could be wrong there, but give it a try.

Hmm. I think things have changed recently. Getting into the diagnostic now only gives the following options for me. On both the main and minis.

BUI MAIN MENU

1 Diagnostic

2 User Settings

3 PlayAssure

4 Exit

 

Diagnostic & User settings don’t have any options to change network(at least I haven’t found any) and PlayAssure isn’t selectable as an option.

 

Any thoughts?
