The limiting factor depends on different things, Playback is mainly Harddisk load for
the Backend Server so depending on what network Cabel/Wireless and Stream type
SDTV / HDTV you use it's for sure not a Problem with two Frontends. Thim means if
you have let's say about 2 GB per Hour then you need a littel bit more then 500 kByte per Second or
about 5 MBit per Second per Stream. As long as your Harddisk is in DMA mode there
will for sure be no Problem with the delivery of the Data to the Frontends
Hope this helps
