I got a new contour wireless box because I was told it would work, but it does not work when I put the Panoramic router in bridge mode. I can watch recorded shows and see the Guide, but live tv does not work.
I assume it’s because of Cox’s use of the MoCA protocol.
So I am paying rent on a useless box. Can someone please confirm that it should or should not work?
Wireless MoCA from box to Pano.
What is wrong with a conventional (coaxial) set-top box?
I have no coax in the room, hence the need for the wireless. Am just looking for confirmation of whether it should work and if so why it is not working.
Right now the wireless box and Pano are next to each other for testing purposes. Again, works fine until I put the Pano into bridge mode.
Why are you putting the Pano into Bridge Mode? In Bridge Mode, the Pano isn't broadcasting. I don't know how the wireless streamer would still get an updated Guide (hour-by-hour, time, temp, etc) without the Pano broadcasting.
I'll assume...since the Pano is designed to broadcast OTA copy-righted material and providers hate piracy...the wireless streamer will only negotiate with the Pano.
In Bridge Mode, how do you figure 2 devices would communicate?
The wireless box is able to connect to my WiFi network which goes through the bridged pano box with no issues or complaints.
