In my opinion the 64 3000+ or 3200+ are ideal. Dual core is pricey and not really worth the money at the moment (I think so at least) and it is hard to know what Sempron is up to the task in performance.

Of course, this all depends exactly what you are doing with your HTPC. The 3000+/32000+ should handle anything, from HD video decoding to gaming, but you can probably get away with less if you aren't planning on doing anything too intensive. Of course, the CPU you choose should definitely meet the minimum requirements for MediaPortal, or you are likely to run into problems.

The price it´s not important! the function is the primary goal!

A gone use MP but no gaming...
Some extra functunality is:
Dual tuners
CD ripping
DVD ripping
TS converting to mpeg
uPNP server

Operating system?? Should a use XP 64 with dual core cpu???
Start to wondering off the VGA card. A always running om Matrox millenium 650..
It´s there any card ho handling video with better picture quality then Matrox??

I have dual core (AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+). MediaPortal only runs smoothly when using one of the two processors. For further information see thread: http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=10364&highlight=

Workaround:- Use the close "x" button in the top right hand corner of the screen and MP2 should restart without need to reboot.

Yes I think it's best to test with TVE3.5 the different combinations. The MTD and MCD modes are handled differently, so we have an option more to evaluate
