Indeed it was thee, sorry  to forget.
My nuc is the backend, I occasionally do some frontend stuff on it. I mostly use (soto voce) my mac laptop as a frontend (and have other linux machines that can do FE.

I am about 10 km from transmitters with a (professionaly installed) external ant and yet the Haupauge are by far the best tuners that I've tried (pixellation on HD). I've also tried the jellyfish samples and the nuc does not falter till 80MHz HVEC

Quite OT I like mac hardware.  Linux does not run well well on the macbook pro, but linux VMs work very well.
Sadly (from an idealogical viewpoint) Parallels runs much quicker than Virtualbox. If I have significant work to do eg build myrh (from src) then the VM on the laptop is the most power machine I have
