+1 for a dual core revo 3610 as a FEBE.  It can transcode UK mpeg2 dvb- 
t (freeview) in real time (or there abouts).

It also runs my website and home samba share.

Transcoding HD in real time would be a challenge, but that is a  
problem I do not have.

It is nice and cheap to buy and run.  I have the os Inc mysql on the  
internal disk and use esata for a recordings drive.  In future I might  
try a little nas for bulk (recordings) storage.
