Just read a review of the VIA Epia M9000 Mini-ITX Motherboard. Is this any good for HTPC? How's good are the onboard Video card, will it work with transcoder to convert the correct res to compoent input of RPTV?
Normally all OB video is terrible, only exception being the Nforce/Nforce2 and maybe ATI's OB Chipset (haven't seen a review). I've never really seen anyone use OB video even nforce for HTPC but i'm sure someone has tried.
I am currently using OB video and it's only 8mb 3D rage connected using S-vid to my RPTV. Quality isn't the best but ok. I am using this cuz I just got into HTPC and trying it out with this machine that have been sitting in garage for 1.5 years.
