Not a bad idea really as long as nothing else needs ram. I recorded
70mins worth of 1080i HDTV the other day and total size was about
3.5G. 4GB is about $35-$40 for DDR2-800 so it's not too expensive. I
usually take advantage of mail-in-rebates so I've actually got a few
2x2GB kits here that I haven't paid more then $20 for each and all my
boxes have at least 4GB in them already.
Is it possible to resize the live buffer is another app needs more ram?
