64 bit processor issues? (1 Viewer)

Are there any issues with using a 64 bit processor? Will it improve any performance? From the faster ram maybe?

Thanks

    mediaportal is not available as 64bit application yet
    reasons:

    1. to compile for 64bit you will need .net 2.0 which is still in beta stage. We'll wait until its released (hopefully this year)
    2. there are (almost) no 64bit drivers available for vga and tv-capture cards

    64 bit processors such as AMD's Athlon64 work fine with MP on regular Windows XP (non x64 version).

    And AMD 64 3000 performs significantly better than an AMD XP 3000.

    My guess is that the 32bit version of MediaPortal will also run in Windows XP x64 without a problem, as the Athlon64 cpu can run 32bit programs natively within 64bit Windows (without performance loss).

    This leaves us with the 64bit driver problem for many tv cards. Does anyone know which 32bit drivers happen to work within 64bit Windows? If Hauppauge drivers do, then I will definitely plan to make a 64bit based HTPC.

    64bit MediaPortal would be great to complete the story, but for now 32bit MP will do just fine :).

    Frodo, any plans on testing a 64bit MP before .Net 2.0 is officially released?

    just to update ppl

    MediaPortal 0.2RC2 is compatible on Windows XP Pro x64 :)

    smirnuff(who is no longer in team-mp) fixed that ...the code instead of using *any PCU* whilst compiling, now uses *x86*
    ...and as Windows xp pro x64 can emulate x86 code..it works a treat now :)

    enjoy :)

    Where do you read this? I’m not aware of such thing and never came across it. Does MP2 not install correctly? If so, please attach the installer logs here so we can see issues. Edit: I’m also using a x64 version of windows 10/11 and never needed to rename anything. Probably you found an outdated info in our wiki.

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.
