Maybe. Even when my 2.6.16 backend is recording 3 programmes at once
(different multiplexes) memory usage does not continue to rise anymore
- so it would seem with my current system configuration (no multirec
yet) it is the number of concurrent recordings that influences backend
memory usage, not how many recordings are made during the day.
