8 I am in quite the same situation. I have an AMD 1700+, 1 gig ram, as TV-out.
9 As a window manager I´m running xfce 4. It does not eat memory and it worked
10 fine with both 256 and 512 meg ram.
11 As player I´m useing kmplayer with support for both mplayer and xine so I can
12 use both engines. Works perfect.
13 Though I do not have any experience of MythTV, I´ve recon I don´t need it as
14 my video card only have TV-out. The only problem I had was the infamous blue
15 borders when playing movies in fullscreen, but putting this '/usr/bin/xvattr
16 -a XV_COLORKEY -v 66048' in .xinitrc did the trick. First you must emerge
17 xvattr.
18 Oh, and yes ofcurse, it is running Gentoo. :)
