Can you give tell us how much ? I roughly estimated the cost here in France : 1W on 24/7/365 costs 1€/year. Leaving a green HD on 24/7 (Western Digital 1TB GP) costs me 5€/year here. Leaving the whole server on (4 HDD, DVB device, ADSL box, networking gear, etc.) costs me 65€/year... Much less than, say, hot water. -- NH _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
