Excellent point, though a VGA->DVI converter would solve this problem.

The CN400 in the SP13000 is matched with the VT1623 TV-out chip which

It's also the case that my EPIA, anyway, has a component out header (though
getting a bracket for it was pretty frickin' difficult... Vidabox are the
only guys that seem to carry them), so in *theory*, it might be possible to
dump HD resolution out that way.  'course, without an HDTV, I have no idea
if this is actually the case. :)  Moreover, the VT1625 is just barely
useable right now (you're forced to use VESA BIOS modes), and so I haven't
gotten the component output working at all, yet.
