I don't have 2 of these to test, but you will most likely need a cross over cable as opposed to a standard straight cable. Otherwise you will need to use a switch or a hub between them

For the cost of a hub ($15) and the need to keep them "online" anyway, I wouldn't even go there. You can't copy between them and the speed between the 2 is not typically limited by even a 10mbs network so therefore it won't be any faster.

I just want to share between them, and to only have to use one set of component video cables to my TV due to the expense of component cables.

Would the units have a problem retrieving program schedule updates

if they are only connected to each other using crossover? I thought

you couldn't retrieve program schedule info by modem and still have

the network active until the new software update posted a few days

ago.
