The SGX535 is the same graphics core that powers the old GMA500 chipset 
that VAAPI was originally written for.  In theory, you should be able to 
install standard Linux on the system, install the proper drivers, and it 
would function similarly to a Fit-PC2i.  A couple of devs got free units 
near the beginning of the year to investigate potential use for MythTV, 
but the system was simply too locked down to make a go at it.
