I have the same box but have abandon the onboard SIS because of a  
problem during playback of DVDs where the screen would intermittently  
jump or lose sync for a half of second. Sound wasn't affected. Back  
when I was using the onboard I used the latest sis_drv from Thomas  
(http://www.winischhofer.net/) rather than what the distro provided.

While I had the onboard SIS running I saw no problems with playback  
of 1080i and 720p content while outputting 1270x720 via the DVI. My  
testing was done with the 1920x1080 tst.ts file found on the  
pchtdv.com site in the download section and some other 1920x1080 mpeg  
demo clips I have.
