I am considering purchasing a HDHomeRun and an external antenna to add to my Channels DVR. I have read old threads and the Q&A concerning this, but I'm not sure if this will work on my setup. I have a gigabit switch for the HDHomeRun to plug into so that is connected to my router. My computer and external drive for my Channels recordings are accessed through a Wifi connection. In the Q&A, it stated that the PC and HDHomeRun should both be plugged into the gigabit switch. I have no way to connect my computer to my router or modem other than the Wifi connection. My Channels DVR works perfectly through this Wifi setup. I have had no problems with recordings or playback. Will the HDHomeRun still work with Channels DVR if there is no ethernet connection to my computer.
Also, I am a little confused for the purpose of the HDHomeRun as I plan to do my recording through Channels DVR. It would seem that the recording option is a moot point for the HDHomeRun. Could be I just don't understand how it all works. Any clarification on my setup and what device will be doing my recording would be appreciated!
