Hardwire Media Manager

Message 1 of 3

Hi everyone, I recently joined the Fios community and I'm playing around with Media Manager.

Very cool program, but I'm sure I'm not the first to complain about the slow speed issues as far as streaming goes.

Whether it be playing Youtube or playing my own videos, its choppy and laggy.

I have a long enough ethernet cable that can extend from my Fios DVR box to the router.
I've read people saying "hardwired."

Do I just plug it in the back of the DVR and router and let it rip?
Will it solve my problem?

Thank to anyone who can inform me on this issue.

- Kevin

Ethernet net port is not enabled on the back of any of the current stb's.

you would hardwire your PC into the router.  don't let your PC do wireless.   the router has a tv cable in the back of it, and it's a two way cable, and that is how your PC and media manager get to the STB's.


it goes through your PC - LAN cable, - Router - coax - to the cable boxes.
