Wel, that's the thing - the system it is on is older, and I don't think:
1. It would be able to handle another drive
2. I don't have the money for another drive

Mostly, #1 - I had tried adding a third PCI Tuner and the system just
wouldn't have it.  Again, using xfs on the myth recording drive (SATA,
1.5), so far I haven't noticed a problem recording two things while
streaming a third... but it seems that there is debate whether or not
adding more is wise, huh?
