we are on linux-dvb, so in case of any CPU, I would prefer linux -
IMHO it is just the easiest thing to do because there is so much
infrastructure around (networking, tuner drivers, etc.).

Concerning BT878 or FlexCop: initial discussion started with
"multiple frontends", and this is one of the cuplrits all currently
available cards/chipsets (as long as SAA7146 is not usable for
dual-channel) have. This is one of the things that should be finally
solved with the FPGA solution.
