First, my server is not in my living room. Second, I hate when it takes
multiple seconds until I get a response. Third, with RAID all disks
would be either up or down. The power saving would be minimal. I save
mor power by using NVRAM wakeup.

My logical layout is similar but the recordings are spread over multiple
RAID partitions (but files of one recording are all on the same).

There was already the diskussion to drop the support for multiple disks.
I don't think that a more complex scheme to handle the spin up/down of
disks has any chance to be introduced.
