My System Specs


Are you positive that the cards can capture from two inputs at the same time? And that SageTV would support that as well?

And it seems like you'd need a fair amount of CPU power, or a boat load of HDD space depending on how much or how little compression you use when recording. Even to directly steam, I'm guessing you'll need a fairly powerful server.

On the software front, I'd suggest looking into MediaPortal. It's hardware support is a bit more limited I think, but at least it's free and open-source. If I recall, it does have a TV Server as well which I'm guessing is similar to SageTV. I use MediaPortal myself for playback of media but I don't bother with capturing/streaming TV.
