IgniteTV switch from Wireless to Wired on Set Top Box

Hey there, i recently switched over to the IgniteTV and had all but 1 set top box hardwired lan connection.  The other box was setup with a wireless connection.  I have since ran a cable to hardwire the connection and want to switch the set top box over.

Can someone please help with the instructions on how to do this....

Hey @fancyb,

 

You can't go wrong with hardwiring the box. The Set-Top Box should automatically grab the LAN connection over Wi-Fi, you may need to unplug the Set-Top Box from the power for 10 seconds. The diagnostics screen will still show you're paired to Wi-Fi. However, if you disconnect the Ethernet cable, your TV should cut out for a few seconds before it tries connecting to Wi-Fi again to verify.

No problem!

 

To access the diagnostics screen:

  1. Hold Exit for 2 seconds
  2. Press the Down key twice. (silver arrow key below the OK button)
  3. Then input the number 2 twice. 

You will need to be a little quick about it as it will time out.
