Before I put any more time in this, I was wondering:
Will an Epia V8000 (800MHz C3, 256 MB RAM, PLE VGA (So no CLE H/W MPEG),
Hauppage PVR250) be able to playback recordings and livetv?
I have 2 big issues right now:
1)No Audio (might be drivers, haven't put any time in that yet)
As to #2:
About every second a few frames are dropped. This happens irrespective
of the MPEG2 source: both livetv and playback of a recording do the same.
Processor seems to be at a staggering 86% usage when playing either
livetv or recording, which seems to be a bit high to me, even for a
'meagre' 800MHz processor
The VGA driver being used is the Trident XFree driver included in KnoppMyth
Via Epia V8000 - 256M RAM - 160GB Maxtor - PVR-250
