The support section of the silicondust website has some instructions for 
setting up with MythTV:
which mention a Linux utility that they distribute: hdhomerun_config. 

The Ubuntu Community Documentation page for the HDHomeRun
says that "hdhomerun_config discover" will dump out the unit's device ID and IP 

So, if you have a Linux computer somewhere else on the network, you might be 
able to use it to find out what IP the HDHomerun thinks it has.

Here's a MythTV thread about HDHomeRun and static networks, which makes it 
sound difficult:

However, the last note in this thread seems to claim that your Mac can become 
a DHCP server for the HDHomerun, just by turning on Internet Sharing.  That's 
news to me.
