[mythtv-users] myth on separate subnet

This is just my two cents here, but in a switched network, subnetting will
not help with actual traffic.  You are still pushing the same amount of data
through the same ports.  You might be thinking of using VLANs (Virtual
LANs), but that is overkill and you probably won't notice any difference.

If it were me, I would leave everything on the same subnet just to keep
things separate.  If you need more addresses or something, just change your
subnetting to allow more addresses.

If anyone thinks I'm wrong or has another opinion, please chime in and let
me know.
