I have an HR54.
I have a C61k and a C41

I also have 3 H25s

Suddenly today my 2 genie clients won't connect to the server. They both say server not found.
I did a red button reset on both of them and the HR54. No luck. All cables are in good shape and tight. NOTHING changed.

Any ideas? Maybe they did a software update that screwed things up?

That's odd. Assuming the H25s are working, can you swap one of them with one of the clients?

Well, I disconnected all the cables, reconnected, and they came back to life. All the cables were tight, not cracked. No clue what happened, but at least its working now.

Sometimes unplugging everything from the power outlet solves the problem.

I had the same issue with the new Genie mini update, the light on the client was green but it would not connect, a couple of red button resets of the HR44 and also the client solved the problem.

I also have issues sometimes that my clients and HR25s are not reading recordings. It says I have no recordings. Red button reset on the RH54 solves it, but it happens quite often.

I agree, but from my understanding, the C61K is the only way to get 4K. Am I wrong?

Same issue here. 2 C61K's and 2 C61's would not connect to the HR54 this morning. Reset HR54 nothing -- same with clients. Searched for around 10 minutes and then connected
