Subject: [mythtv-users] Stutter with a P3 933Mhz! Gezzz - more STUTTER!
> Well - after upgrading my P3 500Mhz CPU to a P3 933Mhz the stutter is
better while playing live NTSC TV - but it's still there during live-tv. I
have to hit "p" (pause) and then un-pause it to remove all stutter.
> What is the min footprint for a MythTV frontend???? My other myth box is
a front/backend combo with a PVR-250 and a pcHDTV card and I don't seem to
have a stutter problem with it (P4 2.6G HT CPU).
> I've tweaked everything I can think of:
> - I've re-niced the mythtv process and the X process like others have done
> - I've checked with TOP and it's not a memory issue (running 256M and not
using SWAP at all)
> - I've compiled with -march=pentium3
> Have I missed anything? Is a P3 just not capabile of being a frontend?
> Here are the details:
> Frontend/Backend combo:
> - P4 2.6G HT (512M)
> - nVidia FX5500
> - PVR-250
> - pcHDTV
> - Latest CK's IVTV driver
> - Latest CVS of MythTV
> - 100Mbps NIC
> - P3 933M (256M)
> - some old nVidia card (AGP card)
> - Latest CVS of MythTV)
> - 100Mbps NIC
> - 100M switch
