[mythtv-users] Storing recordings on network share

Very interesting.  One server is very tantalizing.

Would it help to have 2 Ethernet cards ?

I have 2 switches.   One is a gigabit switch and the only thing on it is
Myth FEs and the server.

The other switch is 10/100 and has "general" stuff on it.  I could tap into
it with a second Ethernet card so that NAS bandwidth stays off the Gigabit

As far as disk access, my new server has 2 6 GB SATA ports on it.

Does it help if the NAS drives are handled by a separate card ?

What happens when the NAS stuff uses Linux software RAID ?

Just to give you an idea of the NAS requirements, I have a high end digital
camera and thus have directories with hundreds of 20 MB files in them.
When I fire up Digikam, it sometimes wants to load a directory all at once.

I'm running an E4200 router.  It allows QOS throttling.
