You can also allow access to the dedicated nic on the backend by
setting up routing to it via the backend box.  That would allow access
to the hdhomerun from anywhere on your network.  That would require
that the backend box and its hdhomerun network use static IP addresses
or manual DHCP addresses, but you are probably doing that already. The
backend box would need its firewall to allow access, if it has one.
Then you can just run a routing daemon on both the backend and
frontend boxes - I use quagga.  You would set up quagga's OSPF
protocols (ospfd for IPv4 and ospf6d for IPv6).  You could also use
the older RIPv2 and RIPng protocols, but OSPF works better.  If you
want Windows boxes or other devices to see the dedicated nic, then you
would need to set up your router to do RIP or OSPF (if it has that
ability) and those devices would have to send their traffic to the
dedicated nic via the router.

It is also possible to just manually set up routing rules, rather than
using routing protocols to set up the rules.
