I have a dual core Revo (R3610) and it seems fine recording 1 DVB
stream from a USB dual tuner whilst watching live TV.

Do you have any idea what is the CPU load in such scenario ? R3610 is
not widely available yet, so I'm thinking of getting the older AR1600

I have 2 drives, an OS+mySQL drive, and a larger ESATA recordings
drive which helps split IO.  I also have 2Gb of memory, but that is
not essential to myth, as I plan to use this host for other server
like things as it is on all the time (home Samba server, webserver)
