For that kind of system, especially the amount of storage you're  
talking about, Myth may not be the best solution, although it could  
be done.

You might want to look into some of the commercial industrial/ 
broadcast systems. I'm sure Tektronix would love to talk to you.

 From what it sounds like you might also want to consult an attorney  
about retransmission rights, redistribution rights, syndicated  
exclusivity and a host of other things such a system could run afoul  
of, especially the "stream over the web" part. Retransmitting  
DirectTV to anyone but yourself might cause problems as well.

I'm not trying to discourage you, just keep you out of trouble.
