It plays fine on my main Mythbox (combined FE/BE; Quad-core 6600 at
2.4GHz).  I have a FE machine upstairs (a slightly overclocked AMD-64x2
5600+; 2.4 -> 2.52GHz); on that box it was a little choppy but not bad (I
think if I had recorded it at a slightly lower bitrate it would play
completely cleanly). Both are using nvidia cards (8600 on the 6600 and
7600 on the AMD).


How much can you OC your 4400+? ;-)
