Home Video Asylum

TVs, VCRs, DVD players, Home Theater systems and more.

It sounds like a bug or router setup....

The TV should see that it has a connection and not ask for a new one. At the same time, the router should drop the old one if it gets a new request and knows that it's the same MAC address or just give the TV the old IP.

The obvious workaround is to set the TV to a preset IP or set the router to only give an assigned IP to that MAC address. Good thinking, Cut-Throat. I wonder if there's an update.
