I think I've got 4 routers/WAP's in the house serving various
functions, including a linksys running dd-wrt to act as a wireless
bridge :)  However, what I am doing with the second NIC in my backend
is keeping the HDHR traffic separate from the rest of the home
network/streaming traffic.

I am running dhcpd on my backend.  The problem with dhcpd, however, is
that it does not, will not, can not, assign an address to the HDHR
until after mythbackend has started.  This means that each time I
reboot the backend, I need to remember to manually restart
mythtv-backend in order for myth to see my tuners.

So, if there was an alternate configuration for my second, dedicated
NIC, that did not require me to manually restart the backend each
time, I'm interested in trying it...
