So i've been doing some reading, and just want to make sure i got some
things straight.  Is it true that i need mtu 9k on all my nic cards and my
switch?  Especially for liek say the HD HomeRun?  If i'm recording 2 HD
channels at the same time?  Yea i don't necessarily get the whole jumbo
frames, mtu 9k thing.  I've seen a lot of cheap ($7 us) gig nic cards but
only 7.5k.  So can someone elighten me?  Also, anyone know of any cheap nic
cards that work right away in Knoppmyth r5e50? (like i posted a bit ago, i
couldn't get the r1000 driver to work for my dad's onboard gig nic card with
this distrubution, and yes i know i'll need more info, just was curious if
someone has gig nic working in that version i woul dbe more inclined to get
that nic card)   I'm also thinking of setting up a RAID server, so does the
9k thing matter with that also?  Recording say 4 SD and 2HD at the same time
over the network (just curious i have 4 analog and than the 2 HDHR ones if
they were all recording at same time).  Also, anyone recommend at good
switch, say under $50 or ever less is always better.  Sorry for the long
post, i just dont' want to buy stuff and find out later i need more.
