The alternatives as per the setup guide would be using autodetected 
addresses with 0.25, or doing the database edits to use autodetected 
addresses with 0.24.  Of course, one is recommended against for 
everyone, and the other is recommended against unless you intend to 
closely follow development.  Either way, autodetected addresses would 
mean MythTV doesn't care where the HDHRs are located.

Personally, I've got three WRTs running dd-wrt just so they can function 
as dumb access points rather than routers, but I don't see the purpose 
of hacking them to run additional network applications on them.  There's 
just a severe limit to what you can do with a couple hundred MHz of MIPS 
and a couple MB of flash.
