Of course you do realise "analog digital" is a contradiction? Just call digital terrestrial.
Oh, and for storage, I use my NAS :)
*giggle* Yep, a bit of a brain fart there. ^_^; As people probably guessed, thankfully (given it's not possible to edit a poll), I meant terrestrial analog[ue] & digital for the first two options.

Ah, but what happens when you run out of space - do you archive off to DVD-R, or just add another drive? (When I can, I'd love to set up a couple RAID cases for mirroring - after all, a pair of 750GB drives would be just about sufficient for one copy of everything here, so four drives.. not all that expensive, really. But I think I'd want to go for an island on SL first =:)
