In your dhcpd.conf you can add something like this:
        host printer {
            hardware ethernet 00:80:77:80:1f:0e;

Where the ethernet address matches your HDHomeRun's ethernet
address, and the fixed address is an address not in your dynamic
IP pool. Then give MythTV the IP address of the card instead of
the HDHomeRun id.

This is assuming the dhcpd server is a Linux box, other dhcp
servers have similar ways to always give the same IP to a
device based on the ethernet address.
