I stated in my earlier message that I a) use static IPs via the Tomato
firmware on my WRT54G router and b) the HDHomeRun has one, if only
because every device on my network (down to the two Xboxes) does.

What I don't understand is the assertion that the HDHomeRun benefits
from having one, as both mythtv-setup and hdhomerun_config use a
unique identifier to locate HDHomeRuns on the network, as opposed to
using an IP address or hostname. Are there other applications that use
the latter?
