I've turned it off, reconnected ethernet to another hub port and still the box is not configuring. Should I wait thirty minutes each time it's turned off and another attempt is madet configure. I waited at least 50 minutes the first time.
Your V6 box expects a DHCP internet connection to both register and update the guide. It will fail if your internet connection is configured for fixred IP. I know this from experience. Sadly this is not made clear in any VM guides and apparently their support people are unaware as well based on my experience.
