I have been running my HDHR on it's own dedicated adapter for a couple of
years... rock solid.
One thing to note, there is no reason to run dhcpd. Simply assign the
adapter an address in the 169.254.x.x range... the HDHR will randomly pick
an address in that range if it fails to get one from DHCP (see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_configuration_networking). In fact, with
some distros, zeroconf is enabled so if you set the network adapter to
DHCP, it will also assign one in that range; saving you from doing any
configuration at all.
Of course, this means that you will need to address the HDHR by device ID
rather than IP in mythtv setup... but if memory serves, that is the
preferred method anyway.
