I am running on PII 300 with 512Mb and a pvr-350 and it does the backend 
and frontend for watching and recording live tv without breaking a 
sweat. Don't know about adding another pvr for input though if that's 
what you had in mind.

While on this subject can anyone provide info on using the pvr-350 to do 
hardware decoding of dvds? The little 300Mhz just can't handle the load 
of doing it in software.
