Connecting the HDHomerun to the gigabit switch fixed the problem. I'm guessing 
that the problem is with the constantly transmitting security camera attached 
to the 10/100 switch. Although everything I've read says that 10/100 ethernet 
is fast enough for an HDHomerun, it's clear that the additional traffic from 
the camera was enough to overwhelm the 10/100 switch.

Thank you all for your suggestions and help.
