 That does look cool, and from their own photos you 
can see mythfrontend running on it, I highly doubt
you would be decoding 720p content on it, regardless 
of whether or not it could display 720p.

 Or are those patches to take advantage of some custom
mpeg2/4/h264 decoder I missed ? If so then I'll pick
one up right away to play with!

 It would likely make a cool SDTV frontend...but without
some sort of hardware decoder ....
