Upgrading MythTV Server to a Gigabit NIC
I have an Atom-based Foxconn R20-S4 as my home server, which is also my MythTV backend. I've been slowly upgrading my network components to Gigabit, and found a deal on a NIC from Meritline with the necessary short bracket. I'm running Ubuntu server on the box, and I had to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file to add the new interface. I switched my router's DHCP settings to use the new interface, and everything seemed to be working fine -- until our PS3 couldn't find the MythTV UPnP server. The MythTV wiki had the fix, which was to add a route to the new interface (route add -net 188.8.131.52/8 eth1).
