I've got an Atom 330 running here (UK) VGA->Scart.

I'm on Debian Lenny with Myth 0.23. I've patched the Intel X-Server with 
the FRC/low dot-clock code from the wiki and have a patched Framebuffer 

I use this cable <http://members.optusnet.com.au/eviltim/scart.htm>, 
though there's a simpler one here 

It works perfectly for SD TV in the UK.

I know it won't work for HD but then I don't have an HD TV. I don't much 
see the point in future proofing - who knows what the recommended kit 
will be in 12 months, almost certain it's not going to be what is 
recommended today.
