I've been using the card on an AM2+ board with integrated ATI HD3200
graphics.  The only problem I've had with the card is when I hit fast
forward or rewind repeatedly, it can take a few seconds for the buffers to
catch up. Leaving it to auto-skip commercials works fine though.

Lately though, I've switched to only using it when I'm playing back certain
bluray titles and sticking with CPU.
