But yeah, I added another NIC to the HTPC and connected the Prime directly to it via a CAT5 cable.

One for the network and the other for the PRIME? Do you have any images?
My Windows 7 system clicks uncontrollably just before the firmware update was issued to my HDHomerun Prime all of a sudden. The remote can’t control it when the clicking starts but only occurs on the HD and popular channels. On the music only channels theirs virtually no clicking. The clicking may be a separate issue but now I can’t full screen the image without the PC going dark and a better picture could solve my problems. Thanks.

I thought my problems were because the HDHR was far from my PC on the network but I may have to give this a shot.

But I didn’t think it was so easy, when I switch to Win7 I’ll be doing this…

When I was having issues I did the same thing swapped out switches, adjusted network settings. I even went out and picked up some intel Pro network 1000 GT cards and that didn’t work.

but again never thought of directly connecting it as well. So now that I have the intel nic and still have the built in mobo nic I will give this a try.

I got the idea because all the newer tuners work this way. I don’t think most realize that even the new CableCARD tuners are just USB Network devices as far as Windows is concerned.

I didn’t know that you could run it direct like that! Thanks for the tip. I will definitely share this with a few friends.
