In fact, I run a "hybrid" config with 64-bit server but have remained with the v7/v9 32-bit Placeshifter & Client. This gets the best of both worlds: increased java heap for the server, while retaining Closed Caption capability for Placeshifter & Client.
Correct and good point.

Thanks, all. I don't necessarily have need for CC (the only time I ever have a caption on the screen is "forced" captions in BD rip movies). I don't use placeshifter. My only client usage is HD300s in the house and now using the miniclient here and there, where I don't have an extender. My reason for going to 64-bit is exactly what is mentioned, I want a larger heap to not overwhelm my server.

My biggest lament is that I can't play my unconverted MPEG2 recordings (or live TV, OTA via HDHR) on the miniclient on my Fire Sticks or Android TV (I've had some discussion about this in other subforums but there doesn't seem to be much resolution) How does Plex do this with their Live TV option? I don't believe it transcodes on the fly (it can do that but I have it disabled and OTA plays fine in Plex on my Fire Stick).

And the comment about me not being in a rush is true, I've lived with it this long... but my RAM upgrade arrived and I installed it last night, so....
Server: AMD Athlon II x4 635 2.9GHz, 8 Gb RAM, Win 8.1 x64, Java 8, Gigabit network
Drives: Several TB of internal SATA and external USB drives, no NAS or RAID or such...
Software: SageTV v9, stock STV with ADM.
Tuners: 4 tuners via (2) HDHomeruns (100% OTA, DIY antennas in the attic).
Clients: Several HD300s, HD200s, even an old HD100, all on wired LAN. Latest firmware for each.
