Along those lines, I am assuming a 330 based system would perform
better in a combines system but perhaps that isn't necessary.

So, for a FE/BE, should I go with 230 or 330 system? I can't see that
it matters how long com flag takes as we either start watching a show
before it is over, or the next day.
