So Carsten, you talk about archiving. Then you should definitely go for h264 coding, with constant quality. Why keep everything online? What is the aim of having terra bytes online? It costs a lot of energy.
Coding and burning to an offline media would help a lot then. And BTW: even your mp3 collection is larger than you can listen to it in one year!

But seriously: My VDR system started out in June 2000 with a 9GB SCSI disk in a 150 MHz PentiumPro system. Disk space has increased a bit since then, but in another 6 years all of that will fit into a single disk and that will not be the largest disk you can buy for a home computer, either. Neither is my VDR system even close to the largest one. I believe that Matthias Schniedermeier has so many disks in his house that the house no longer requires a separate heating system. ;-) Carsten. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
