I've got a 650Mhz P3 with 320MB ram running as a single ATSC tuner  
backend, it really needs a little more ram as it fails with a real  
memory allocation problem every week or so!
Initially it had 256MB but failed to complete a scan successfully  
until some more memory was scrounged up, so I think it represents  
around the minimum practical. Just about everything is turned off  
except sshd, mythtv-backend and Apache for Mythweb.
