HDHomeRun with Google Wifi

Postby forza1967 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:14 pm

I just went through a bit of a pain getting my HDHomeRun to work with Google Wifi. I had to move the HDHomeRun to be south of the Google Wifi, but even then, it would not work. I rebooted the HDHomeRun, but I would get an error when I tried to tune to any stations. The solution was to re-run the setup application and rescan for channels. I have not idea why, but after that everything worked. I could not find anything online to help with this and was pretty frustrated, so I thought I'd post it here.

TL;DR. When you are on Google Wifi put the HDHome run and all clients, and DVR south of the Google Wifi primary access point. If you just installed Google Wifi, also reboot the HDHomeRun and rescan for channels on the setup application.
