Subnet Question

I'm looking into running SageTV Linux with an HD300 and Silicondust HDHR. I want to know if there are any requirements for these devices to be on the same subnet?

This isn't strictly a Linux question. If people have done this with a Windows/Mac SageTV server, it would work for you.

I've never tried it across a router, but searching the forums for "hd300 internet" gave a few results of people who seem to be using an HD300 across the public Internet, so that's an indication your situation might work. The auto-discover server thing probably won't work, but you could hardcode the server IP in the HD300 interface.

As for the HDHR, I would be a bit more careful. Again, I haven't tried it except across a switch. But, I bet SageTV won't be able to discover the HDHR. Also, drop outs during playback are annoying, but fixable. Dropouts during recording means that bit of show is lost forever, even if you fix the network later.
Current Server: Sage v7.1.9.1 beta w/ Diamond UI on Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64 | Storage: Linux md's raid10,f2 | Client: HD300 extender | Tuner: HDHomeRun for QAM

Your SiliconDust HDHR needs to be on the same subnet as the SageTV server. If it is not on the same subnet it won't be discovered by the discover command.

Yes, thanks.

I ran across that exact requirement in the Silicondust forums:

Fortunately I was going to have the server & HDHR on the same router. The plan at this point is for the server & HDHR to be on the same router (100 Mbit) along with a 270 Mbit TEW637AP. Then the HD300 will connect via wireless N using a Buffalo WLAE-AG300N ethernet converter.
