Should not be a problem.

I have no problem with Live TV on my FEBE.  Live TV is easier on the
host as most of the video file would be in the buffer cache (memory)
so would not need to be read from disk - saving IO.  On mine making
four recordings and watching a fourth is probably the worst I can do
to it.   Even then it is fine.

You could always ebay it if not happy!  I'd probably buy it!
