Not on a DVR.
Nope. Too much data the DVR is pumping into it - constantly.
Here is a thread of a guy using a 512GB SSD in a Tivo. He claims a 50% performance boost in the menus...
Here's how you do it.
I would also say that there would be a performance in some aspects of the DVR. However whether the gains outweigh the costs is another matter. It would be an interesting expirement to see what aspects are being hampered due to access times and throughput so I'll do it eventually but only when I have a spare SSD from a laptop I upgrade or throw out.
Cost 'effective' solution ? Nay.
Using the 50% menu acceleration what is 0.01% of total time of consuming the TiVo for whoopy $700+ ? Nay
I see the number 20-25GB/day thrown about. The discussion needs to hold itself to talking about hours of programming because that's what we're actually interested in. That equates to about 3-5 hours of HD programming. Subtract from that any satellite-delivered VOD that is recorded in the non-user areas and any Double-Play activity eating space at twice the rate.
The bigger question remains: what might be the tangible benefits of such an endeavor?
Using the TiVo example you would have to save many hundreds of hours in guide browsing to make up the difference.
That was in reference to a normal system when I said that the limits generally don't really come into play for a normal user. I agree that does not apply for a DVR.
