I am looking to move from my current tablo engine setup over to Channels DVR and had a couple of quick questions i'm hoping someone can help with......for reference my plan is to pick up a Connect Quatro tuner and use my old Lenovo i5 quad core/12gb ram tower thats not being used as my server.
Is there an "optimal" OS for the server? i'm leaning towards something simple like Linux Mint (or even just Ubuntu Server since thats what i use on my plex server) but had thoughts about trying to go the Hackintosh route to throw MacOS on it (saw a youtube video of it running on mac and looked like it had a handy system tray utility which i didnt see on linux)
I currently have a 250gb ssd in that tower and was going to be ordering a 1tb ssd. Would it make sense at all to keep both drives in to install the OS on the main 250gb ssd and install channels/recordings to the 1tb 2nd drive? only reason i thought was if the OS would run into an issue and i had to reinstall i wouldnt have to do much to recover since all the DVR data would be on the 2nd drive
any advice would be greatly appreciated! thank you!
