The AOpen i915Ga-HFS has 3 pci slots, gigabit ethernet and supports pentium M. I've used it with a 1.73MHz processor and for even software decoding SDTV using softdevice and a matrox G450 pci card, the CPU fan is off. Only when I start doing kernel compiles does the fan kick in. So for practical purposes, this motherboard is recommended, except that it has two pci slots too few.. If you don't find the perfect board, you might have to consider USB devices.. This board is very silent. It's more silent doing software mpeg2 decoding than my second VDR machine which has a Digitainer motherboard with onboard CLE266 unichrome chipset with hardware mpeg2 decoder (and a 800MHz celeron proc). http://www.silentpcreview.com/article311-page1.html (review) http://i915gmm.gratiswiki.dk/cgi-bin/gratiswiki.pl (info about the sister board to this board, with less pci slots) -- Torgeir Veimo [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
