I don't know. With OTA signals @ 1080i my old AMD 2600+ came to its knees. With the Core -I5 it's loafing along, although I noticed about a 4-degree rise in internal case temperature.
The HVR2250 seems like a nice unit, pretty happy so far, only disappointed that it's a common RF input to the dual tuners. I was hoping for separate RF so I could have dual signal source (OTA + Cable).
Presently using it with ORB Live to stream live TV, like slingbox to my iPad
