Users / LinuxMCE in a separate sub-network
« on: September 06, 2007, 08:12:44 pm »
I want to configure my media network on its own switch with LinuxMCE as the DHCP server. The original (wireless enabled) home network will continue to use the DHCP server built in into the wireless router. This lets media server to shutdown or sleep when not in use. Can any one review this network diagram for me, please?

If I feed internet to LinuxMCE server directly from the main switch, will it make any better or worse?

Users / Best TV card?

I have a few questions about tuner cards for LinuxMCE...

Which is the best TV Tuner card (internal or external device) for LinuxMCE? I am considering HDHomeRun. Is there a better alternative?

I like HDHomeRun because it has got two ATSC tuners. The bad is that there is no NTSC tuner so it cannot  tune regular NTSC (correct?) .
Since it has two tuners, two Media Directors can watch two different live channels at the same time, am I right?
At the same time, I am also wondering if 100Mbps bandwidth is sufficient to stream two HD channels in the network.

I am wiring/configuring the whole Media network with its own Gigabit switch to optimize network bandwidth. Will plugging in HDHomeRun into this switch bring down the whole network to 100Mbps? Router is going to be DLink DGS-2208 which has got 128MB buffer.

BTW, does TV Tuner cards come with FM tuner built in? Or should  I get FM tuners separate?


Users / Bandwidth (network) requirement for LinuxMCE

I started experimenting with LinuxMCE. I am wiring 8 network drops for LinuxMCE on its own sub network with its own Gigabit switch on CAT6. If I simultaneously use three Media Directors with a LinuxMCE server to watch three different DVD movies (from harddisk), what kind of Network speeds are required?
