VIA HD Digital Media Platform

Hi All,

So I received the updated VIA hardware on Wednesday.

It's playing 720P avi's and wmv's without any issues at all.

I'll start looking into the Mplayer, MythTV and JavaFX after the holidays.

It's really looking good though, VIA is supplying some super code for the Ubuntu kernel and the Mplayer video out plugin.

Just realized that it does have a coaxial-cable input. Looks like this is going to be a hit.

IPTV Wayne, coaxial is the easy bit.

DRM kernel module, VIA kernel module, VIA Xorg Module and VIA Mplayer video out in HD is the tough bit.

All the software has to work together with the hardware to pull of displaying HD.
