power: use as webserver and htpc at same time

Mon Jun 04, 2012 7:43 pm

Looking at the hardware, does the RPi has enough power for running as webserver and htpc at the same time? For example
- apache, php
- pyload
- transmission
- mediatomb
- mpd?

Running XBMC, as installed app e.g. on Fedora (not openELEC), will not be with good performance, right? Or can I run it, at the same time with the above, and watch videos (not HD, just ~720 x 400) on my tv (connected via s-video)?

The only thing I can say for sure is that you won't use S-Video directly. The R-Pi offers two video outputs: plain old-fashioned composite video, the kind you get from an old VHS deck, and HDMI. Maybe there is a HDMI to S-Video converter, but I don't know of one.
