Thanks for the reply PhilModJunk. As I was waiting for a reply to this post the cable technician showed up for the internet service call I had scheduled. Thus internet was down for a few hours. Then got tied up 4 more hours. Sorry for the delay in this reply.
Thanks for your instructions. Will put them into play on Wednesday 05/14/2014. Will post back with you if I run into any issues.
