1.7Ghz is going to be pushing it with HD.  You will most likely need to
upgrade.  A better video card (nvidia 5200 or 6200) would help if you
configure XvMC but even then its really close.  I once got HD working on a
Athlon 1800 but just barely and ended up upgraded for a better user

See here for more info:

check you playback settings.  If i remember correctly its in
Setup>Playback>TV playback or something like that.  You may need to
configure you sound to use the right output (OSS, ALSA, Spdif etc.)  Scroll
through the options till you find one that works.

Good luck,
