DVBLogic has released their DVBLink product suite for QNAP ARM NAS units, brining you the ability to record and stream live TV with your ARM-based QNAP NAS.  I’d personally love to be able to offload live TV recording and streaming to a low-power NAS unit rather than using my Core i7 rig as I do today…and now DVBLink is available for QNAP’s ARM-based NAS units.  Cost is £25 for the server tool and £12 for the electronic program guide.  This package is downloaded directly from DVBLogic here and is installed manually on your QNAP NAS.  Here is the blog post:
