Wanting some advice for upgrading my hardware as I am getting 100% CPU usage (most often when running guide and live TV). Often due to the high CPU loads it gets unresponsive.
Currently running windows MCE 2005 on
Intel Celeron 2.4ghz
3 IDE HDDs and IDE DVD burner
Hauppauge WinTV HVR 3000 card running freeview DVB-S
Should I get a TV card that will do its own mpeg2 decoding or upgrade motherboard? if ya can suggest specific models that would be wicked.
Long term goals with the system
Possibly going to freeview HD at some point and of course I will have to go vista to do with that.
Don’t particularly want to have to replace all my HDD’s at this point, or have to do regedits until I have to go Vista way.
