Let me start with the bad news. I know my feed server is not energy efficient. It is a full size desktop that is on 24/7 along with 3 scanners and 3 high end external USB sound cards. The scanners and sound cards draw very little power but i noticed my electric bill is actually a lot higher since switching to the dell server vs using the acer netbook. I do not want to take the feeds offline because of a few dollars but if its going to cost me an extra $50-65 a month to run 3 feeds i just might as well upgrade my directv package and 86 the feeds. The good news is i will cover the cost of getting something that is less power hungry. If anyone here can help or if you have some advice please chime in.
