[mythtv-users] Minimal hard drive specs for HD recording. (RPM, buffer size, SATA I, II, or III ?)

Yes seek time is very important.
I would doubt that one hd could record 2 hd streams while serving 3
frontends with hd streams, and this is with commflagging and other processes
reduced to the bare minimum.

I have one hd recording 4 sd shows and 2hd shows while serving 1 frontend
and comm flagging 1 show... this overwelms the drive on occasion.

Db and os are on a seperate drive.

As you are using hdpvrs I presume all content would be high bitrate

As a minimum I would look at using two drives with large partitions, not in
raid and each setup in myth storage groups with spreading of load based on
i/o load.
