home media option with imac

the recommended router and adapters do not seem to be mac compatible. Are there any mac users using HMO with success?

I am very happy with HMO on a Mac based network. The router is a LinkSys BEFWIS4 v2. One TiVo os hard wired to a hub connected to an Airport(ivory) base station; the other TiVo is connected via a wireless adapter NetrGear MA101. I have also been successful with the LinkSys WUSB11 (v2.6) but with a lot of fiddling.

The server on this system is a PowerMac G4 (QuickSilver 867). Not only does the internal network fine but I have been able to send photos from iPhoto on the Mac in Pittsburgh to our daughter in Los .

What are your symptoms -- there are number of Mac users who frequent these boards.

I think it is one of those "technically true" things, but it doesn't matter that you can't use a Linksys USB ethernet adapter on an iMac, because the USB adapter is for the TiVo. You use the standard ethernet port on the iMac to get it on the network. The Linksys folks don't provide Mac support, but all their routers use a web interface anyway, so that doesn't matter anyway.

Once thing you should note. the TiVo desktop only supports OSX. If you're still running on OS9 you're out of luck.

The suggested adapters are for the TiVo and not for the computer. All iMac models had an ethernet port and iMacs produced in the last three years or so all included support for installing an Apple Airport wireless card (along with an antenna integrated into their case).

I own an original (revision A) iMac which is connected via a wireless adapter to my network. However, running OSX on a 233 MHz machine isn't a good idea.

I use a LinkSys router on my network as well, but you can also use an Apple Airport Base Station as a combination router and wireless access point (you may need to attach an ethernet switch/hub if you need more than a single ethernet port for the local network side)
