Well, I have an EN12000EG which is fanless and contains a VT1625, and while
you are correct that the chipset isn't fully supported, it certainly works
on my TV.  The only major trick is that you have to tell the via driver to
use the VESA BIOS for setting the video modes.  This'll get you a working
640x480 NTSC configuration.  The picture doesn't perfectly fill the screen
(there doesn't appear to be any overscan), but it does the job for me,

I do eagerly await full support in the openchrome drivers, though... :)
