you could do what you say. A lot is going to depend on your setup and what radio interference you may have. The software could have some effect as well.
I have HTPC in the living room, and use to be in the family room (TV went out). That computer is connected to my network wirelessly. I do my TV recordings on my office PC that is connected by wire to my router; I also have a HDHomerun connected to my network. I use WMC, and have it set to share all recordings to all the machines using WMC. It plays fine. Here and there I get some stutter (pixelation). Most of time it's just interferences from the microwave; sometime I don't know where the interference is coming from.
On the same machines, I can play movies using Plex with no issues; the HDDs with the movies are connected to the office PC.
