SnapStream's Godzilla DVR: 11 tuners, 1TB storage, $4,000

It looks like this is really just a proof-of-concept to show what the company's Beyond TV DVR software is capable of, but the folks at SnapStream have gone ahead and created what may well be the most powerful DVR known to man or monster. Dubbed the Godzilla, the box houses no fewer than 11 tuners (4 HD/7 standard), four 250GB drives for storing TV shows, and a dual-core Pentium D 840 3.2 GHz processor. SnapStream puts the cost to create this monster at over $4,000. Of course, you'll have to build it yourself, and by the time you're finished doing that, we're not really sure how much time you'll be able to spend watching the 112 hours of HDTV or 424 hours of standard TV you'll be able to store on it.
