A simple VIA Epia EN12000 with a Terratec 1200 DVB-T card did 24/7
recordings of 3 channels off of one multiplex and once in a while it ran
the frontend.

A low power, cheap AMD Athlon can do what you want, easily.

See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/425229 for the
current lowish power hardware that is running the same task now.
I upgraded a bit so it could run valgrind more or less well.
You can downgrade somewhat and watch/record TV easily.
