Hardware, Embedded Systems And yes, another item, right away. I'm on the hunt for a mini-ITX motherboard for use in a living room HTPC, and considering there's so much choice out there, I'm a little confused. Then I realised I have you people to help me out, and, well, one thing led to another.

Lacking in one HTPC department I meant.

The PCIe slot doesn't matter, as no PCIe card will fit into his case anyway.

On Windows 7 there is no VDPAU or XVBA. (Article says that this will be the OS)

Partially true, since both technologies you mention are linux. However, DxVA is available, and the fusion chips do UVD2 quite nicely.

I built a "hudson" E350 based system with a Ceton InfiniTV card, and it handles 4 HD streams no problem. The ceton card runs a bit hot, however, so extra cooling was required (apex MI-008 case).
