Actually, my frontend and backend each have 526 MB of ram and it
appears to be plenty.  I record almost entirely HD shows (OTA) with
three HD-5500 tuners in the backend. Granted, I'm not doing any
commercial flagging at all and the backend never needs to do any
decoding, transcoding etc, but I have no problem recording three HD
shows at once.

Out of curiousity, has anyone here run into problems using that little
on dedicated frontend/backend machines?
