Dedicated NICs for 2x HDHomerun -- How?


I threw my server together yesterday, and it seems to work pretty well. I took the advice here and purchased 3 Intel NICs. I read the (very scant) documentation for the HDHomeruns, and it seems like they'd autoassign an IP address. So I configured the two NICs with the IP address range they suggested (169.something.x.x). Well, it wouldn't work. When I ran the HDHomerun setup, it instantly came back with "0 HDHomeruns found".

So I read around a bit, and found some were using a DHCP server to assign IP addresses to their HDHomerun dedicated NICs. I found a nice one, that's just a DHCP server, but it looked like a pain to configure.

So, I went to Windows 7 Control Panel and highlighted all three Intel NICs and bridged them.

All seems to work swell now, but did I just invalidate any advantage I gained with the dedicated NICs in the first place?



whole home server:
Windows 7 Professional x64, SageTV 7
2x HDHomeruns on dedicated gigabit Intel NICs, 3rd Intel NIC out to giga switch
Athlon II x4 635 (2.9GHz), AMD 785G motherboard, 4 GB DDR2 RAM, 6 hard drives
2x 500 GB RAID 1 OS (225 GB data partition)
2x 1TB RAID 1 Sage recordings
2x 1 TB RAID 1 Sage recordings
2 ea HD300 on order, couple of clients and Placeshifter planned
