Does anyone know if the ethernet ports on the HR-2x's are gigabit or 100? I have MRV thru ethernet and need to connect a switch because I'm out of ports on my gigabit router. If the ports are 100, wouldn't it be overkill to buy a gigabit switch? Just wonderin'

They are 100Mb ports. What I've read, it's best to have all DVRs connected to the same switch and possibly have it be a dedicated switch. This switch is then connected to the router for internet access.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
