A friend of mine was able to view DVB-T YLE HD on dual-core Intel core2 3 GHz
CPU.. I think it didn't work very well on 2,66 GHz dual-core one. 

Notice that there was been some optimizations and fixes lately to
mplayer/ffmpeg/libavcodec so you should be running latest SVN version.. 

Or then you could try with CoreAVC H.264 codec..
