[mythtv-users] Intel GMA 900 and HD

I posted a similar question about about a month ago and I'm still searching
for an answer.  Can a motherboard with an integrated Intel GMA 900 chipset
handle HD (720p + 1080i) with the XvMC driver?

The intel specs say it can but they don't say if the Linux drivers support
it.  Any definetive articles I find on the web are Windows specific.  The
Linux discussions seem to degrade into arguments instead of coming to any

Can anyone here point me to an article or does someone have any personal
experience with this chipset and XvMC?  There's a box that would make a
great FE for me if I can make this chipset work.

As a secondary question: Does the PCI interface have the bandwidth to handle
an HD stream?  That is - if the GMA 900 can't do HD can I put in a PCI
graphics card that will?

Any assistance or comments appreciated.

Thank you,
