Hi,
I am about to take my old 800MHz and make it to a HTPC, it's a 800MHz with 256MB Ram and a GeForce 64MB, which can use DX9 and a Hauppauge WinTV 150. Would it work to record, pause livetv and so on with this hardware?

This would not be recommended hardware for 2.0 RC2 at all, perhaps you can get an earlier version of MediaPortal working acceptably? You can always just give it a shot, it is lower than is recommended though. (You won't lose anything by giving it a shot if you already have the hardware)

    More specifics would be good. There are users on here using less than the requirements with average results.

    If its a P3 then that might be fast enough but not a celeron/duron. 256mb isnt really enough, 512mb for windows XP.

    If its a GF4 42/4/600 might be enough. GF4MX or less, no. 9500/5200/6200 would be good.

    Record and watch live tv maybe, timeshift I doubt. The requirements page is there for a reason, its needed for acceptable performance.

    Recommend Pentium 4/Celeron 1.5GHz with 512MB RAM
    ATI Radeon 9550 and above, ATI Radeon X300 and above
    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5xxx, GeForce 6xxx and 7xxx series

    Hey you have a good TV Card with "Hardware Encoding" because improve your performance. Try use nVidia PureVideo decoder too (low CPU usage, and high image quality) and try use 256 mb ram more.

    Well, your issue is really weird. Normally, battery should be OK but, who know ? And, if you have something like that : It could be interesting to see if your battery give 3 Volts. Also, if, after 3 days (for example) if you can start your PC manually and, go into the BIOS, motherboard BIOS time could be a good indicator.

    Sorry to disappoint you but Media Portal only offers recording and scheduled recording for TV broadcast over SAT, Cable or OTA. It does support viewing of some streamed content, Netflix and Amazon Prime I believe and a host of free content dependant on your location, e.g. BBC in the UK and German Channels in Germany via the Online...
