Thanks for the answer.
The first thing I realized when I learned how to use search on the
mailing list was that this question is very common so I was already
preparing to shot myself expecting the hear the advice to learn to use
search. :) It's a shame.
Ok, back to the point...
The problem here is that I have a little unconventional hardware: it is
a small form factor Intel D945GCLF2D mini-ITX Motherboard +
integrated Intel Atom 330 2core 1.6Ghz. I have doubts about it's ability
to encode 4 channels of D1, besides Intel advertises Atom's performance
as video encoder:
I really don't want to setup another device specifically for DVR,
especially with large form factor. Installing cheap capture device w/o
h/w compression sounds like a great option, but I'd really like to be
sure that Atom 330 is capable enough for this. Is there any expertise on

If you're looking for a hardware card, the guys at bluecherry have
upcoming cards which should fit your needs quite nicely:
For a four camera solution though, you can do real-time x264 encode
with a cheap dual-core processor. There's no need to buy the more
expensive hardware encoding cards unless you go for a 8 or 16 channel

Although I found some such boards, they do not appear to be supported under
