I read the hardware section
on the main mythtv page, but it doesn't mention my
specific hardware. Anyone out there using a PII-450
or something else similarly underpowered?
All I want this system to do is act as a frontend and
play MPEG-2 files (5000 kbps/7500 max) my backend
server's PVR-250 has created. When I try to view
them, the video and audio is very choppy. Is this
setup just too slow, or is there some setting I should
Hardware specs: PII-450 on a 440BX board. Onboard 4
meg S3 Trio 3D video, 512 meg EDO RAM, 12 gig HD (I
think it's ATA/33 since that's all the BIOS can
support but I do not know for sure), SB Live and 3COM
