    Hey Mark,

    In this case do you think he might need a crossover cable since he's not using a switch or router?

    He will need a crossover cable most definitely. He can also do this by going HR20 -> Ethernet switch -> PC with 2 patch (normal) cables.

    No crossover cable is needed. I have verified the ethernet port from the HR20 is auto MDI/MDI-X . Any CAT 5 network cable will do even the crossover cable.
