I'm looking for details a little more specific. Thank you.
The HDPVR connects to your Sage server via USB so no network issues there. The HDPVR captures at a max bit rate of 13.5mbps, so that is the maximum network speed needed so as long as you connect your server to your HD100 via a 100mb network you should be fine......
The highest video bit rate that you would possibly be using would be MPEG2 @ 1080P which I believe has a max bit rate of 40mbps (someone can verify that).
