Hey all wondering anyone with this setup how many streams can be reordered and streamed to clients at the same time?

I would not expect much from Raspberry Pi. In most situations you can only get reliably one single stream.

I use it with 2 tuners and it can record 2 channels at the same time.

the main problem I have is with the Raspberry Pi falling off the network every now and again and needs to be restarted.

I think its limitations of the hardware

just an update, since buying a power supply designed for the pi I havent had any network or other problems with it. I think the standard issue is power on the pi.

Other than a few feature issues it has been the best low cost TV server I have set up (and there have been a few).

Things I am looking to add:

-X100 expansion board adds extra USB ports and regulated power along with VGA out. I am trying to remove my powered USB hub
-add my HDHomerun to the 2 Elgato (dib0700) usb tuners and see if it handles 4 tuners if 2 are networked.

I'll post my results

ok I activated my HDHomerun tuners in DVBLink so I have 2 Elgato USB tuners and 2 tuners from the HDHomerun.

I set up schedules for 4 shows on different muxes at the same time and it worked. All shows recorded fine with the time buffer added at each end.

I ssh'd in and ran "top" during the recording and dvblink used between 70-90% CPU while recording 4 streams.

this is pretty impressive for such a humble pi.

I did encouter a problem logging into the DVBLink webui this morning so I ssh'd in a ran "top" again and noticed that the epg grabber was running (I use the IceTV plugin from DVBLink) and it was using 96% CPU at that point so it must have been causing the network issue.

Once it stopped I was able to log in again.
