Default Linux Multimedia center

Hello,
I like to setup one of my computers as a multimedia center, which will be connected to TV (using S-video)!

I have the computer and the hardware configuration for the computer is as follow:

CPU:AMD athlonXP 2400+
RAM:1.0Gb
Video card:Nvidia Geforce 4 Ti 4600
TV Tunner:Asus TV/FM card
Audio: Built-in
Motherboard:Asus A7V8X-X

But i have no clue which linux distro. to use, or which softwares to use..!
Now i was thinking i could use SUSE and setup the TV-out but for some reason it just gave me a black screen!

The other feature i want to have for my multimedia center is for it to be able to play all videos (even if they use different codecs)

Also i have a ATI Remote wonder and i wanted to get it working with the multimedia center!

is there anyway i could do this?

Thank you,
Dr_s99!
