Invalid wireless MVP MAC address

I just received a new wireless MediaMVP and I'm encountering several issues. The most troubling of which is the fact that the MAC address shown in my DHCP tables for the wired interface is different than the one printed on the sticker on the bottom of the unit.

Lets get the background info out of the way.

SageTV 5.0.4

Wireless MediaMVP (Model 86017 Rev H3 Lot 0106) which shows firmware version 2.05 on the boot screens. The sticker on the bottom says...

I have two other older wired MVPs that are working fine so the network, firewall, etc. shouldn't be an issue.

I was also seeing a line like this in my sagetv_0.txt log file.
Couldn't match client 00:50:c2:24:5f:ff

After some forum mining I added this line to my file

Now this does seem to do the trick but makes me uncomfortable. My primary concern is that I may have a bad unit. This MAC address is not a Hauppage MAC address and I've seen other posts on the forum discussing problems with MVPs that have this _exact_ same MAC address. This should never happen. A secondarily (and minor) point is that I would rather not have to get into the business of doind static DHCP assignments.

In addition I didn't receive a CD in my box so I can't even try the wireless interface until I get that sorted out.

Dan indicates here that Hauppauge uses a modified MAC address for the wireless connection. Maybe that is what you are seeing.

According to Hauppage my MVP is broken. They have graciously agreed to cross ship me a new one. Hopefully this will solve all of my issues.
