If you're using a hardware based capture card ( PVR x50 or dvb-x) and
outputting at standard definition then you probably don't need XvMC
for any processor above 1GHz.
I'm using two nova-t cards and a Geforce MX440 and can happily record
from both cards and watch a recording on my AMD XP1400 (1.05GHZ
Software encoding and HD output obviously leave less spare CPU power
so are more likely to require XvMC, but I've no experience of these.
