I just joined the mailing list this morning, so I missed the first part. 
I'm running a MII 10000 LVDS for a frontend (MythDora 4, with some minor 
issues) and a ML8000 under Ubuntu (both frontends only).
I could never get MythDora to install on the ML8000 so I went with 
Ubuntu on it and had really bad video from the backend on it. What I 
ended up finding was that Ubuntu-Feisty doesn't enable the via video 
chipset by default, only vesa. A quick dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg 
fixed my issue once I enabled the via chipset. I'd agree with Dani that 
this is definetely something to make sure is enabled.
