In your considered opinions, should this hardware be sufficient to 
support a backend/frontend plus one remote frontend, both watching HDTV:

CPU: AMD Athlon64 3200+
Motherboard: nForce3 chipset, DFI LanParty nf3 250GB
Video: Nvidia Geforce 6800GT 512MB
HDD: Maxtor 500GB SATA, Maxtor 250GB SATA
Tuners: 2x pcHDTV 5500
Linux: Ubuntu Edgy 6.10, amd64 kernel

If it sounds like this machine should be pulling it off without skipping 
a beat, I am going to install 32bit everything and try again. I 
understand there are some issues with the 64bit edition, possibly the 
SATA driver is one of those things.
