Yeah, systems that use integrated GPU are becoming less and less useful
for MythTV frontends now that nvidia has left the chipset business. It
means that you'll likely need discrete graphics if you want something
other than outdated graphics. Note that "discrete graphics" includes
the "discrete" mobile graphics approach (where someone sticks a laptop
graphics part onto a motherboard), as used with the ION2 Atom systems,
the Mac Mini, or the ASRock Vision 3D.
