I am running Mythbuntu 8.04 on a dell tower I got from a BYU surplus
sale a year and a half ago. It uses the PVR-350 and everything is
pretty pleasing. The only thing that isn't so great is the streaming
media from online sources has pretty choppy video. I suspect it may
be on account of the computer never being intended to watch online
video and its being something like six years old. Maybe.
Anyway, I was hoping for suggestions as to what I might be able to
upgrade for the hardware in order to improve the performance so that I
might be able to get rid of the stuttering video problem. I always
been told that increasing the RAM is the cheapest and best way to bulk
up a computer, and I guess I could do that. Any other ideas?
This is what I've got:
512 MB RAM
1.70 GHz Pentium 4 Processor
40 GB Hard Drive
PVR-350 Tuner Card
