Well the install seemed to go smoothly with config popping up when it was done, but now the MVP just sits there with that infernal blue screen. It's either trying to contact the bootserver or loading application. I've been around in circles it seems and now all it does is look for the bootserver.
The firewall was cofigured before and working fine with gbpvr and the mvp. I'm not now getting any popups from it when powering up said mvp. Exceptions are set for the MVPs ip address and pvrx2, the mediamvp gui server, the recording service and the tray are all OK to do business according to the firewall (zonealarm freebe btw).
I'm restarting the box for one last round of farting around but the logs will follow in my second post. Hopefully when I go back in there it will have sorted itself but I hold out little hope of that.
The MVP is the key to the whole pvr for us so it not working is going to create all kinds of hate and discontent.
