I have two HD tuners, and plan on getting two more. And, I have 4 SD
tuners. I think bandwidth is a legitimate concern for me :)
Right now I have about 350Gb in 4 scsi drives on a raid controller. I have
the controller configured to not raid the disks, and return individual
volumes, so that MythTV can manage it's own storage.
Since scsi disks are expensive, I was hoping to move to NAS's. But -- maybe
the better approach is to start replacing the scsi disks . . not sure . .
I'm a cheap bastage.
