I want to get setup to use a PVR to record DVB-T & I'm confused as to what is actually needed to record H.264 MPEG4 which is what I understand what DVD-T is in NZ
It seems the minimum cpu varies eg from Avermedia or Hauppauge
1.What is the minimum that people out there have been using eg would a Sempron 3800+ 2.2Ghz be enough or dare I say it a P4 2.4Ghz ?
2. Would the specs required be even higher since Freeview will be using Mpeg4 rather than Mpeg2 for HD DVB-T ?
3. I read people have TV3 HD running at <10% CPU if that is the case why would powerfull CPU be needed ?
4. Should I assume the graphics card makes no difference to the CPU required since I assume recording is done before the content gets to the graphics adapter i.e. there is no relationship to between recording and the graphics adapter ?
