Beatphreak,
It's not clear what you mean.
I assume you get the DB7000 web page which will show you a list of channels, providers services, vpid and apid.
You can do all sorts of things once you have that, but you need to be pro-active and demand what you want. If you want the EPG to update, you might have to hit the refresh button; I never waited that long. I use the web page to set a recording because this involves minimal disturbance to her upstairs who only wants the magic buttons to be pressed later so she can watch Jericho and Vincent when Waking the Dead has finished.

What do you want from the internet which is the WAN linked from your LAN? If your LAN links thru your router to the world, then usually the green button on your handset will get you what you might need.

cheers haggard

yes i can get the web page view with vpid and apid... all fine.

as for the internet and the green button i'm getting the error message.

I have the hydra pheonix and thought that connecting to the internet would allow mw to update K*eys and other usefull things more quickly.

Am i wrong in thinking this?

cheers
