[Especially with the growing trend to have programs end at xx:01.] As far as storage goes, I often keep episodes for a long time. I still have the last three episodes of "Fringe" and the last two episodes of Season 1 of "Orphan Black. Add to that nightly episodes of Letterman, Leno, and Kimmel, and occasional Free Previews of HBO or Showtime, and 500GB gets eaten up REAL fast. I've never muttered to myself "I wish I had less storage space."
6 Tuners isnt enough in myhouse,
Elderly Disabled Father uses 2 to record almost 24/7,
I have my DVR that records Prime Time TV Shows literally every night except Saturday, plus the voice and other stuff, and hockey.
Then I have brothers that wanna use my DVR (cuz it's hooked to a large HDTV).
I cannot wait to get my renovations done and get my HTPC w/ 6 Tuner InitiTV / 4 Tuner InifiTV Cards done. 10 Tuners for $4/Month (well depending on Cable Card Costs). Hooked into a Dual Giga-Bit Teamed Network and a 4 TB Raid 0+1 Array on a 16 Core AMD CPU and 64GB of Ram.... (Both are "external" InfiniTV Boxes, w/ Active Cooling Attached.).
The 4 Tuner will be sent to Two TVs using Extenders, Using LAN0 and Gigabit Router.
The 6 Tuner Ceton will be networked to other PCs/Laptops in the house through Private Network and Windows Media Center Using LAN1->Gigabit Router.
The HTPC Will Use LAN2 (Addon Card) for Internet Connection.
Every PC in my house has Dual LAN Ports on the Mainboards, so one is used for Media Network/File/Printer Sharing,
The other for internet, Laptops will use Cat5 for Media and Wifi For Internet.Edited by SkateZilla - 10/17/13 at 7:40am
