[mythtv-users] Memory requirement

Hi, I have a dual-tuner (PVR250) backend running smoothly, with an
XBox frontend.

I'm considering getting a second frontend.  This would be a frontend
only, not a slave backend, and will not do its own encoding.  Would a
P3-933 w/128 megs of RAM be okay for decoding?  I'm not worried about
the CPU, but I wanted to make sure the memory was sufficient.  I'm
looking at an inexpensive eVectra, which from what I understand seems
to be very difficult to upgrade (i.e. I'd probably be stuck with the
128 if I got it).

Thanks for any info,
