Check out the reviews at http://www.epiacenter.com, they likely have all
of the info that you are looking for.  The real question is: Does the
board you are looking for have driver support in Linux?  Any hdtv output
would likely be done by a Via VT1635 chip and I do not know what the
status of that chip is on the current sets of open source drivers.  If
you get a CN400 (or newer) board, you are better off using the
openchrome drivers than the unichrome drivers which are in the kernel.

You might want to take a look at the epiOS distribution, which is VIA
