Snapstream builds six-tuner monster PVR

The Medusa PVR…not exactly what I would be looking to do, but amazing as a proof of concept. Perhaps ideal for someone watching cable, satellite and with entirely too much focus on watching TV. Or just great for the news junkie…

recording 6 streams

Snapstream also built a six-tuner monster rig as a proof of concept, dubbed Medusa. Using six PCI slots on an expanded motherboard, and just a single 40Gb hard drive, they can watch, stream, and store video from six different channels at once. Pretty impressive, though they do mention the tuner cards can generate some heat while encoding. [PVRblog]
