I don't know anything about Omniback, but if you only have 2 devices, I wouldn't think you would want anymore than 2 channels.

You can always test it out. Configure 4 channels, run a backup, and see how many channels are used. If you look at the output of your backup, it will tell you which channels are used. It may "allocate" 4 channels, but see how many are actually used at one time. Then run it with 2 and then 1 channel. Look at your times and your throughput.

Like slimdave and Jeff always say... you need to benchmark!

Good Luck!
