[mythtv-users] Via Epia Hardware

I have two EPIA based diskless and fanless frontends: one EPIA ME6000 
and one EPIA SP8000E. I run MiniMyth 
<http://linpvr.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=8> on both. Both work well.

I bought the EPIA ME6000 before the EPIA SP8000E was available. The 
downside of the EPIA ME6000 is that it is not capable of HD playback 
(which works for me because I have one SDTV). The downside of the EPIA 
SP8000E is that the drivers for the TV encoder chip are not quite ready, 
so you must use the VGA output (which works for me because my HDTV has a 
DVI-I input).
