    I own this board (the version without USB3) and run MP 1.2 TV Server (with Dual DVB-C) as well as Client on it. Don't expect it to run as fast as a desktop pc with dedicated graphics card and fullblown CPU, but it still is smooth, and fullfills its task as htpc well. I can watch 1080i TV and 1080p h.264 BlueRay. It might stutter occasionally when there are other tasks running on the htpc, but in general it works smooth. Only problem I keep having is the bad AMD drivers that occasionally crash my PC while playing DXVA content.

    What are you using to view live TV? I was thinking of putting in a better graphics card and using a USB dual dtv TV stick instead of my pci e TV card.?

    I use the Digital Devices Duoflex for PCIe, it's really small and fits nicely into my box. The integrated 6310 can handle live tv fine.
