I've had pretty good results using the M9000 (C3 at 933MHz).
TV output quality is good, but can probably be made better using via's X
driver - I'm currently using -vo vesa on the framebuffer. I really can't
wait for them to open the source on their driver so we can get a good
accelerated framebuffer driver going (apparently within the next couple
of months, according to source @ via).
I've been able to play all of my media files & DVD's without any
processor performace issues.
BTW I'm also running my EPIA from net boot accessing everything (except
DVD, VCD) from NFS.
Just in case you want digital out for sound - I had to use the Realtek
driver to get S/PDIF output working properly. Fortunately, they have a
patched alsa0.9.0rc5 that you can use.
