After trying to deal with my older Mac and Channels DVR/HD Homerun, I've decided to record my shows on my newer Windows PC. I easily got HD Homerun up and running, but as soon as I tried to reach Channels DVR I was reminded why I chose the Mac as I was unable to successfully reach Channels DVR the first time I tried. This time, I have to make it work, or throw out my antenna and HD Homerun.
I started here since I have Norton:
How to open a port on Norton Security? or How to add a traffic rule?
Bring up Norton Security
Click "Settings" (2nd icon on top right menu)
Place cursor over the word "Firewall" and click.
Tab to >> Traffic Rules
Accept default: "Allow connections that match this rule."
Select "type of connection" default is to and from other computers.
Select "Any computer" or "Any computer in the local subnet".
Select protocol: generally "tcp and udp" or "tcp" are common.
KEY: click radio button "The rule will apply only if it matches all of the ports listed below:" The add button will become available. Click "Add".
Specify Ports: Click radio button "Individually specified ports", enter port number.
Accept default: "If Explicitly requested"
Provide a name for the rule.
I chose 8089 as the Port using UDP. It did not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
