Quoting myself from 26-01-2006 to provide a data point for you:

"I'm running a slave BE/FE system using a Celeron 1.3GHz w/256MB RAM
(Intel 815 chipset). Video is TV-Out from an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro. This
is with a PVR-150 and 2xDVB cards. No problems at all with playback or
recording (think I've had 3 simultaneous recordings locally and
watched another over the network). This is running MythTV 0.18.1 on
FC4 (2.6.14). The HDD is a newish 200GB drive after my IBM Deathstars
finally clicked off this mortal coil."
