I just bought an older emachines box with a pentium D 805 processor . Should I download the i386 version of mythbuntu, or the 64 bit version?

Thanks,

Charlie

i386 because your system is 32bit

x86_64 is 64-bit

x84 is 32bit as well

Many thanks for the info; should I expect a useful system for backend/frontend HD broadcast TV? I realize that a video card upgrade is probably in order.

Also, does anyone know whether 8.10 can find & use an Air2PC-ATSC-PCI (ATSC 8VSB) card without any special file loads? The previous system I had running for a few weeks had to have a file downloaded & inserted to get the card to work.

Sorry for such juvenile questions, but I can barely find my way around a menu system, much less anything close to a Linux command line.
