Oh really?  That will work?  My HDHR does have a static IP on my
network so I COULD do that...  Will Mythtv accept that?

Which firmware version did you test with?  I don't know what firmware
it came with, but it didn't work, so I upgraded to the newest firmware
and it doesn't work, either.   I tried extending the timeouts once but
it didn't seem to help.
