Which CPU is recommend for MP? I am thinking about a Athlon 64. Or is the performance of a AMD Semperon god enough for MP?

    For a quiet system a Sempron is powerful enough. Got a 2600+ myself and it basically puts out no heat (40C full load with the stock heatsink). A copper heatsink would probably suffice with no/low speed fan. Its nice and zippy for MP and works well with 2 tuners (1 analogue, 1 dvb - soon to be 2).

    Dont know anything about AMD, but ....

    I use a Celeron D320/2.4Ghz/533FSB in my Pundit-R; works great for MP.

    Before that I used an P4/1.5Ghz/400FSB in the same box; works ok for viewing tv/dvd BUT the guide was a bit slow when navigation throu the channels, so I guess the "Intel way" is >2.0Ghz/533 FSB.

    What REALLY is importent is having a HARDWARE encoder TV-card, like fx. a Hauppage PVR-150/500 since this has more impact on how the system works than using a software encoding card and a Athlon64 / P4HT processor.

    In fact i would say that my older P4/1.5Ghz + PVR150 works better than a P4/3.xGhZ HT-processor and a software TV-Card - for recording anyway :)

    WishyWashy's suggestion to go for a Thunderbird 1.4Ghz is not such a good choice, since that is one of the most heat producing AMD cores. :eek:
    1.4 Ghz should suffice though

    Thanks. I tried this on my side and I see also the local drives.

    I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.
