What are the major benefits are a tuner-less master backend? I am curious...
Has anyone calculated how much power you'd actually be saving setting up
multiple PC's being started/shutdown every day? ...as compared to
powering tuners constantly in a master backend only? I'd be interested
in the specs.
I see the benefit of allowing you to put a PC closer to an aerial where
one has limitations around these things... and don't want it to be the
FE for noise considerations, but I can't see how you save power by
multiple shutdown/startup sequences. I think people just want a use for
lots of small PC's they have stacked in the garage around the house :)
I'd hate to have to upgrade everything as well .. I don't think Myth
supports a lower or higher version of myth at the frontend than the
backend for example which is a shame.
