I have a question about nuppelvideo-config and my lack of this file when =
I am building mythtv. Should this file be there, I wouldn't think so =
until libnuppelVideo is completed.

  Subject: [mythtv] Some hardware questions


  I am putting together a new myth tv box...can you advise me on some =
hardware?

  motherboard, cpu, and ram:   ECS K7S5A-2 with AMD Athlon XP 1800+ =
(1.53Ghz) 266FSB CPU, with 128MB of PC100  ram.=20

  video card:  geforce2 MX w/ tv-out

  harddisk:  80GB IBM 7200rpm



  question is:  Should I spring for DDR ram? Will it be needed versus =
the PC100? Will the geforce2 MX be sufficient? It will handle the Xv =
extension with nvidia's binary driver. Any suggestions for hardware =
beyond this?



  thanks!


  Chris
