Hi

I am going to install MythTV on ubuntu server. I am going to use it as a backend only, to record tv to a file share for playback on my network media player. I need to purchase a twin tuner or two HD tuners for that part.

How important is the GPU for this type of machine running MythTV? Could I just use the onboard video? I read the VDPAU is a good feature of NVIDIA cards, however is this only required for the 'frontend'?

thanks
