I don't have a home network, so is there any advantage to my buying WDTV LIVE instead of the Gen.2 model? Is the Gen.2 basically the same as LIVE without ethernet & component connection capability? Thanks.

I believe that is correct. My only concern now that I've bought one is whether there will be as many firmware updates (official & unofficial) as with the other models.

As far as updates go, I'd bet the WDTV LIVE will get the lion's share. But I'd also bet that most of those updates will be network related, so I don't know as those us with Gen.2 will be left out in the cold. Time will tell, though.
