Unless I have read wrong, I just have to set eth1 (the new, dedicated
card) to, subnet mask to and the hd homerun
should just connect without an issue. Doesn't seem too hard (won't know
until I get one, though)

>From the manual:
If the HDHomeRun is connected directly to the PC (rather than a switch
or router) it may
take up to 3 minutes for the PC to be able to detect the HDHomeRun. This
delay can be
eliminated by configuring PC's network interface to a static IP address
in the 169.254.x.y
range, subnet mask No default gateway is needed.
