You'll be fine with x86_64 -- I've been using the 64-bit versions of
Fedora since FC8. (One Backend, 3 frontends)
IIRC, the only thing that's "sensitive" to running in one CPU only is the
Channel Scanner, which can be resolved by starting mythtv-setup with
'taskset' to force it to run in the first cpu/core. (Although this may not
be an issue any more with 0.22? I dunno...) ;-)
