I’ve configured my Advantech kit to run as a media device with a USB Tuner.   I’ve been watching the Tour de France race using it.  Here in Oz its on late night into the earlier morning:  The specs are:

The system works fine displaying the tour.  It seems that the live sporting TV works fine whereas some of the TV movies become a bit stilted (frozen frames).  I am happy with that though; I was a bit concerned that the system might not be able to perform suitably with the digital tuner.

I also tried a Winstars USB HD Video device, as the Advantech board doesn’t do HD.  Whilst I have used the Winstars device with a Core 2 Duo and an I7 system with little or no discernable load, the Advantech system couldn’t cope.
