Is the card in an AGP, PCI or some other slot?  If PCI, maybe you are
having interrupt issues or something.  I would think the sempron would
be fast enough, but the 3200 should definitely do it.  I think I have
a Sempron 3200, but not 100% certain.  Again, I can playback HD
content (although not with the latest nVidia driver), but when I try
to watch it live, it is not as reliable (the funny thing is, if I
record, and then playback from the recordings, while it is still
recording, that seems less problematic).

Can you upgrade to something better than that, like a dual core chip?
