I ran it for an hour or so and got this.
5271634 packets received, 78198 overflow errors, 10 network errors, 0 transport errors, 0 sequence errors
My computer is wired to the same network that the Quattro is wired to. I do not use wireless anywhere on my network, other than for my laptops. The HTPC and the Quattro are BOTH wired to a gigabit switch which is wired to my whole house gigabit switch.
In the past, my setup was using two AverMidedia Dual tuners attached via PIA in my old HTPC. So why would I be getting network errors and overflows? TIA
Wired is good, but you could still have an iffy cable or switch or firewall somewhere between the HDHomerun and your HTPC. And any of those could cause subtle oddities on an otherwise functional network.
I see you posted this on Silicondust's forum too, they should have a better understanding than me! Specifically, I'm not exactly sure what "overflow errors" means.
But for the network errors, I'd try to simplify for troubleshooting. Start with a direct connection between the device and a PC -- ideally a laptop, so you can move it around easily. Set the laptop's network interface to a static IP address in the range of 169.254.x.x (eg. 169.254.1.10) with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0. Leave the gateway blank. Connect the HDHomerun directly to the laptop's ethernet port and try running that hdhomerun_config command again. Should show no network errors, since it's entirely local, assuming the ethernet cable is good.
Next step, connect both the laptop and the HDHomerun to wired ports on the same router, and run the test again. As long as the tests come back perfect, keep moving the HDHomerun one further network hop away from the laptop, or the laptop one further hop away from the HDHomerun, and repeat the test. Once you get the bad test result, then you'd know exactly which network hop caused it.
