Not sure about the 800, but I just got a Via EPIA M 9000 for xmas and I
will be putting it together soon as a MythTV frontend (and a DVD player).
I'll let you know how it goes.
BTW, I've been meaning to ask this. The EPIA M 9000 has an mpeg2 decoder
that is appearently supported by the Via linux display driver. This
should help performance when playing dvds, but will it help with mythtv?
I actually think the M9000 has enough CPU to handle mythfrontend without
it, but I was curious.
