Hi, I am looking at replacing my Xbox 360 in the lounge and wanted to replace it with a HTPC. But I also want to record TV shows from Freeview HD. I was wondering if the Atom D510 with Core AVC with deblocking turned off to save on cpu load will still record Freeview HD. I have Heard you can play 1080p H.264 on the Atom D510 with deblocking turned off but not sure if it would be able to record though. Could any one confirm this and also confirm playing 1080p H.264 video? Doesn't need to be blu-ray bit rate sence I won't be using blu-ray. But the reason I did not want to go with some think like the sempron 140 with 785g is because it uses a lot more power and this system will be running 24/7 and the Atom is also fan less.
Any feedback or recommendations will help
