Sound's like it's time to hire somebody - to watch all that stuff that I will be able to record.-

Don't forget about HD, 9GB/hr.

Well, I have cheap cat5 all over the house. I already have on HD cable box (+DVR), so I have an idea what I could be looking at - as far as my Sage recordings are concerned. My new server (with 2 SATA raid controllers) could handle it. But how about my 100MBit network?

HD, worst case is 36Mbps, and that's for QAM (which is 2 channels). Normal OTA is only 19.4Mbps.

Hm, so, you think I could be able to have two clients play HD recordings at the same time over my 100MBit network?

Probably, although you'd probably need a full duplex connection to record and playback two streams.

Does anyone know if these Dell SATA II drive will work with a SATA I controller? I'm pretty sure they will (sort of like connecting a PATA 133 drive to a PATA 100 controller) but I don't really know for sure.
