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 :)

    That fixed the problem. I just manually installed VC_redist.x64.exe and reinstalled 1.32 64-bit. Thanks for that.

    Thanks again for all the help. I deleted 'BDHandler.dll" from the process folder, and as expected, it no longer appears in the MePo configuration utility. I also downloaded the X86 BDReader plugin that you posted. Renamed the existing files in the MePo folder, and copied the updated files to the MePo folder. For the most part...

    You need to check the wiki for TVMosaic, you have recordings as source available once TVM is installed. And of course images and music are part of the NET6 version as for NET4. If you have issues with it further infos would be good.

    Hi, First off: there are some issues with the latest Mediaportal (32bits vs 64bits), so that is one of the issues you're stumbling with. If you take the previous version (1.31) it should work as expected. For IPTV there is also a different option (with different pros and cons): Onlinevideos. I'm using that sometimes for my IPTV as...
