    I have a dual core pentium machine under the TV with integrated intel graphics and 4 gig of ram.


    I want a Distro to use as a media centre. It needs nothing else except obviously support for all codecs and 3D SBS and support for remotes. Printing etc is not required.


    What would people recommend?

    Myth TV comes to mind.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

    I will download a live cd of both of those and have a play. Not even heard of Ubuntu Studio, to be honest.
