I'll add another +1 to this. I've never been able to get multi-channel recording (even 3 or 4 channels) working reliably over an NFS link to another server. I suspect, with some tweaking of nfs options it might be possible, but if it ain't broke…

Just a cautionary note if you do use a cron job to move recordings to a storage device at regular intervals: make sure you use lsof or similar to check the recordings aren't actually open by asterisk at the time, otherwise interesting things will happen.
