[mythtv-users] Is there an advantage to using a NAS vs local hard disks?

I have both local raid in my mythtv box and remote NFS raid.
you would want "live tv" to be on a local non-software raid
filesystem for sure.
but other then that even 100mbit ethernet is fast enough for
playback. playback and a couple of transcoding writes could
fill up the pipe though. with gigabit there would be no worries.
wireless is of course out of the question.
if the NAS box doesnt do NFS but only SMB (windows) then there
might be performance issues to worry about.
