Re: security key needed
The key was assigned by you when you picked the security type on your router during setup. The router is WEP or WPA , both require a Passphrase. Maybe you can get the ip address and type it in windows URL and see the setup instruction. Bottom line you need to get to the routers setup ...the passphrase will be shown on the security page. Good luck and be safe!

If you are getting sound but no picture, try unplugging your receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot. If you still don't have a picture but do have sound, then check your cables to make sure they are secure. I hope this helps.
Hello, this Luke. Hooking the 508 to any TV is just like hooking a DVD to TV. Just used whichever cable available to you. e.g. RCA, coax. But if you want to have Satellite programming to that receiver, that would be a different thing. You will have to call Dish to add that receiver to your account with them. They will verify that receiver if it is registered to an account with debt and add it to your account if it is clear. They might need to send an installer to hook it up. Let me know if this help.
The video problems are generally bandwidth problems.
First, on your laptop set the 802.11g adapter settings as follows.
I found an obscure section in the DPG-1200 software help index where
they define settings for your 802.11g adapter, and these make a big
Transmit power = highest
wireless mode = 802.11g
throughput enhancement = enabled.
roaming aggressiveness = Lowest
Ad Hoc Power Management = Disabled
Turn off the ability of the computer to turn off this device to save power.
This can be enough. Remember to press the green button to put your laptop in "Video" mode when playing video. Won't work properly otherwise (is a lower resolution).
If you still have problems then you need to increase your bandwidth on your laptop. Plug it into an ethernet (that worked for me). I also have an 802.11n adapter on order which should work too.
As for your ball issue. Reset everything and the connection. If that doesn't fix it, you need a new remote.
It depends on your processor speed, amount of memory, USB speed, video board, and audio processor mostly. If they are equal in all aspects (or the laptop is better), then you have a software problem most likely... You might try reposting with the details of your two systems.
Tivo uses a wireless USB adaptor. They sell for around $45 - $60 dollars at most electronic stores. They use them to update the tv guide as well as download additional programming such as tivocasts. It's better to use than the phone linew.
