That may be a little much for the 1GHz processor unless you either 
offload or don't use the commercial flagging.  I have played 640x480p 
out the component with MythTV and with Mplayer just fine.  Unfortunately 
I had to stop working on it a couple of months ago and didn't get to 
work on the 1080i modes yet.  In my case I am only planning on using it 
as a dedicated frontend without any capture cards or storage.

Ivor has added my VT1625 support patch to the snapshot.  He is working 
on the modelines that I never got to, so a new snapshot isn't available yet.

Looks like Via got a little smart and changed out the VT1623 on the 
Nano-ITX board for a VT1625.  Other than that I don't know of any, but I 
haven't really looked either.
