[mythtv-users] Strange Issue with Myth and HDHomeRun

Stroller, thank you very much for your detailed responses. I really
appreciate your help.
Just to be clear, my decision to use the hub instead of a switch has nothing
to do with me not knowing the difference between the two, and everything to
do with a lack of resources at the time I was connecting things up. I had
the B/E box directly connected to the IPCop box using a cross-over cable. I
had originally intended to put the HDHR on my internal network, but once I
got it and started setting it up I realized that Myth could not find the
HDHR if it was on the internal network. In my rush to get things up and
running I grabbed the first thing I could get my hands on, which was the
hub. The way this problem presented itself it was not evident that this
was/is a network issue. And despite your very valid points, I am still not
100% convinced that it is a network problem.
I know that you said you are not familiar with 'ifconfig', but here's the
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:01:6C:A8:D7:C5
inet addr:192.168.1.2 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

If I was saturating the network wouldn't I see some errors, drops,
Also, I know I've probably been withholding key evidence, but I'm also
running Slimserver (music server) on this Myth B/E. The service streams
music in various formats over the network, and it's running all the time. I
have to believe that this is generating at least as much, if not more,
network traffic than simply starting the Myth front-end. But yet it is
running the Myth F/E, and only this process, that causes a problem with the
I am going to try moving the HDHR and Myth B/E into the internal network.
Believe me, I hope I prove you right, and not wrong.
Thanks again to you and the others for the responses.
