I have a 1.2 Ghz AMD Duron with 1 Gig of RAM
80 GB Hard Drive & 64 MB Geforce 4 Video Card

Media Portal is Choppy...

I do have a P4 2.0 Ghz processor/Board... would that be enough? with teh 1 Gig of RAM & Video Card?

    Its a DirectX 7 card.

    The 9200 is a DX8.1 card, but this will only put a little extra strain on the cpu. The cpu bridging the DX7 to DX9 gap is much too much work.

    The GeForce 4 NON MX is still a DirectX 8.1 series card. You will still notice a slowdown, but not nearly as bad as a DirectX 7 card.

    Your 1.2 Ghz AMD Duron with 1 Gig of RAM is more than enough for Mediaportal; Mediaportal's power resides in the fact that is uses DirectX 9 functions to work, and anything lower than a DirectX 9 card is going to have to emulate functions on the CPU.

    Get a cheap DirectX 9 card like an FX5200 or 6200 series card or better. A lot of people use these types of cards even though they may not be for gaming, they are great for simply using Mediaportal.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...
