    • Processor Requirements (minimum):
      • Dual core CPU.
    • Microsoft® Windows® 7 (32/64bit), Vista (32/64bit) or Windows XP Service Pack 3.
    • Graphics with 256MB memory (or greater)
      Note: the playback of high definition H.264 requires a fast CPU and at least 256MB of graphics memory.

    When you capture with the HD-PVR, no rendering or decoding is actually done on your PC, it's all done on the fly by the PVR. All the it does it send the encoded video to your PC via USB to be written to your hard drive. My old macbook with 64mb of integrated graphics and a 2.16Ghz core 2 duo runs it fine as there' hardly any cpu/bpu work done on the pc.

    Rendering and editing video however, is a completely different ballgame, you need a nice powerful pc to render 720p video :smashin:

    Its likely to find the editing and exporting tough going.
