	Hi David,

	Have you looked into the AccessGrid recording program AGVCR? On an 
average PC it handles a large number of sources without dropping 
packets. For example, on a 2.8Ghz Dell with 1GB RAM, running Windows XP, 
AGVCR CPU usage is typically in the 5% to 7% range while recording the 
NCSA Lobby.


	The only worry you may have is disk space.

	I'm giving a talk about AGVCR in the AG Townhall tomorrow, if you want 
to attend.
