His GPU is probably good enough for MediaPortal 1, though maybe not MediaPortal 2.Once again (for the last time), the really weak graphics card in your 10 years old client system is not strong enough to playback the Live-TV video.
Keep in mind that Australian TV mostly still uses MPEG 2 video (even for HD) not h.264.
MediaPortal has higher GPU ("video card") requirements than WMC and many other DVB/TV programs/products due to our user interface style. It's nothing to do with "dirty source code" and everything to do with graphical beauty. Rendering our interface requires more powerful hardware because our interface uses more complex features etc. in an effort to look more beautiful and be more usable.
