IIRC, I think this box has some issues unless your network card can
properly negotiate 100Mbps/FDX, TV breaks up if only at 10Mbps.
I understand this is a fairly trivial issue these days, but not uncommon
to use an old 10Mb NIC for a DSL interface on a *nix box.

Apart from that, there's the good benefit of being able to pull the
TransACT TV stream from the second interface, something the Motorolla
cannot do.
