So from what you said it is no problem to record one show and watch a
pre-recorded one at the same time with one card (like you can with Tivo)?
Also what is the issue with CPU usage and burning to DVD, or is it best to
copy video files to another computer and do it there, I'me asumimg I will
need to transcode from freeview stream to a DVD compatable format and this
is going to max out cpu.
My other option is to use my current motherboard (P4 1.7) for my MythTV box
and replace my main system. Would this be up to it?

use an AMD 1800+, which uses around 25% of its CPU when decoding to a
What I was hoping on being able to do is allow the TV card to do the
recording and have enough oomth in the CPU to be able to decode/play at the
same time as recording or do I need two TV cards to do this.
If you want to record two shows at a time or if you want to watch live tv
while recording a second, then you need two TV cards. Otherwise you only
need one (I have only one).
