Hi all
i am looking for solutions for the following scenario:

- we have 16 analog cameras installed
- we had a computer running mirasys software with 4 pci cards http://www.euresys.com/Products/picolo/PicoloPro2.asp
- this computer is now gone since motherboard has gone bad and i unfixable (the system was installed 8 years ago)
- getting a computer with 4 pci cards today seems impossible (at least i cannot find any in local computershops)

the only solution i have found from the company that originally sold us the system is  to get 1 card for a new computer that has 16 inputs for the cameras, but that would require us to purchase
- computer
- license for a new mirasys software license
- card
- setup fees

so i am looking for other options for using these already installed 16 cameras and record
does perhaps a nas box exist that is designed for this purpose or are there other solutions ?

May be you can use an external box which connects to a PCIe port
This would allow you to buy a standard PC.
