I want to move my DVR to new(er) hardware.
I've got an old Dell Optiplex PC with an i5-3470 processor / 16GB RAM, and would run CentOS 7 on it.
Is that a decent spec for Channels DVR?
I'm specifically interested in how many concurrent HD recording/playback sessions it would support.
Alternatively I could get a Synology DS218+ but again, are there any details on how many concurrent HD recording/playback sessions it will cope with?
I have two homerun IP tuners - a twin and quad unit (total 6), with several TVs in the house. So occasionally things get busy I want to choose the hardware which handles multiple stuff the best.
My existing DVR is on a MBP with i7-3520M processor and it struggles with multiple stuff going on - playback stutters when you're recording in HD and want to playback an HD recording simultaneously.
Thanks for your help,
