[mythtv-users] any real performance advantage with 64bit OS?

Subject says it all. I was wondering if it's *really* worth the effort 
to install a 64 bit OS to gain some performance (lower CPU usage, more 
stuff that the box can do).

System will record/play digital MPEG2 TV, both SD and HD, with an HDHR 
tuner, to a plasma TV (probably HDMI).

If the gain is around 2% or so I'd rather install 32 bit (a known 
quantity) and avoid any surprises. I don't plan to use weird codecs, 
perhaps not even Flash, but if I do, those are know to work well on 32bit.
