The big online retailer Newegg is showing a NAS server from Qnap and software that
says it will encode on the fly from a video source.
I have no knowledge of what this is about and wondered if anyone knows of this
capture hardware and software.

It's a DLNA server that can transcode video files on-the-fly when streaming to a DLNA client.
Digital Living Network Alliance. Sounds like a cyber punk anime I know.
There's a bit of explanation at wiki I just was able to see.
It's not applicable to me in the context I'm asking. I have no cable tv, premium services etc.
But does the DLNA capture in like manner to a cable capture device -- DVA I think is the term? And what format does this on- the- fly transcoding produce? Are you familiar with the Qnap software? How is it better than what a DVA does? You turn it on for your show, have it record everything but the commercials and play back as a file. That's just my understanding of it which may be faulty.
Thanks for answering. I don't think it applies to my needs or applications.
