I was asked to look at the computer from a DVR system and see what I could do with it. The damn thing has never run worth a shit in the 4 years they've had it (I used to work there myself). Machine is a 2.8GHz pentium 4, half gig DDR (PC2700 I think), Radeon VE 7000 video card, and 4 capture cards. I'm wondering if throwing in a new mobo, core 2 duo, and a couple gigs of PC6400 might solve the problems. What kind of hardware does it take to run 16 video feeds sufficiently? (lots of ram? lots of cpu? capture cards themselves have anything to do w/ it?). It seems like a hardware issue to me, but the software their using is called DVR 2400 (version 1.43), not sure who makes it.
