Lets see... if they record with 1GB per hour, which is low for DVB,
one channel needs 168GB per week. The usual 2GB per hour
would make 336GB for one week per channel.

It is possible that they repack it to mpeg4 with some hardware,
then it is probably less.

Overall it boils down to having enough harddisk space to do
that. Besides that it is not much magic involved, IMO.

For me it is quite much marketing noise going on there. We
will see what comes.

Kind regards,
