These tuners need the fastest hardwired connection to run properly... Ethernet.

If you have enough ports on the router get an ethernet cable long enough for it. It's not hard to fish through walls and floor if need be.

My Tablo is hardwired and I get a good feed on all my devices over WiFi. Park your tuner near the router and you are done.

OP hasn't come back... I hope he knows that these Tuners need the fastest possible internet to function properly at the source, also the Antenna signal has to be good. It sounds like he's putting his HDHR by a rabbit ears antenna in the other room and trying to run the system on WiFi... that's just not conducive to good operation.

It really doesn't matter where the Tuner is located, as long as it has a strong Ethernet hardwired connection, then it'll distribute the signal everywhere in your house with your Router, on WiFi. If the Router only has one port (or all ports are already taken) then you need a new Router!

Most of the reasons why people buy the external Tuners is an easy way to spread the signal on their network, to avoid running wires everywhere.

Different strokes I guess... for a network tuner.

If you ran a longer coax lead to where your computer and HDHR is then you'd solve both issues and be able to record remotely on whatever device you are watching (if this model has a HD internal or connected).
