Possible, but everything was working fine for a couple months then stopped
working, and it's only mythbackend that can't access it.

Both are wired.  Other things on the network are the normal things, a
desktop, a couple phones, a few echos, some smart switches.

Backend has a static IP ( HDHR has a DHCP address
(, currently).

One sort of odd thing is that the HDHR is not showing up on the client list
on my router.  However, like I said it works with other devices, I can ping
it from the backend, and nmap shows it's up, connected, and working fine.
