I disagree.  Looking on newegg I see 2 AMD ATX boards with onboard video.  
Neither has DVI out.  Most people watching HD use DVI, myself included.  And 
I have 4 tuner cards so mATX isn't an option.  Hence the reason I got an ATX 
board with AGP and a fanless GeForce 6200.  It's not a gaming card by any 
stretch but works perfect for MythTV.
