I want to set up a secondary Myth box. It's a bit weird so I figure
I'll post and see if I can tap into some of the experience here.
The base machine will most likely be an Athlon 1800. This is strictly
for SD playback.
The display is a regular TV, so I need composite output on a AGP video card.
The computer will also be used for a workstation, so ideally I want
something that can drive a VGA monitor with a regular X session as Head
1 and the TV with a myth session as Head 2.
The workstation won't be used much; some light text editing, email, and
surfing; most likely running a lightweight desktop like XFCE4.
It would be really, really nice if the TV could use hardware
acceleration for things like tuxracer....
I could do this with 2 video cards; one AGP and one PCI if needed.
