following the "MPC5604EQSG Quick Start Guide.pdf"  to set up a video streaming connection between the board and a Linux host via ethernet, I followed the 5 steps on page 8. But after pressing the reset switch there is no live video displayed in VLC. Additionally the Activity LED will not flicker.
While investigating further there seems to be no logical ethernet connection as the board cannot be pinged via 'ping 192.168.1.2' from a Terminal. (The host IP adress was manually set to 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0).
Any help would be much appreciated!
