Don't know.

The IVTV web site makes mention of older VIA chipsets having problems  
with DMA, but I didn't see a definition of "older".

Check their site and perhaps their forums and see if you can find any  
additional info, that's all I know about it.

I used an AMD64 (Socket 754) motherboard with a Via chipset (K8N8)  
and had no problems, though I did have to adjust the PCI latency of  
the IDE controllers.
