I'm building a HTPC (home theatre pc) and was curious if the "AMD Athlon II X2 255 Regor 3.1GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor" would be fast enough to record over the air HD video. I like the processor because of it's low wattage and high performance. I'm pairing it with 2x2GB DDR3 memory sticks.
I have spend a good time searching, but am unable to find a definite answer on a video capture card (usb or pci-e) that works flawlessly in Windows 7 Media Center. If someone has one that works without any glitches, could you please post that here.
