Well, watching a DVD on a (fairly) large screen really shows differences between a DVD rip on a regular single layer DVD disk, and the original. I want the best possible picture quality while watching a movie in my home theater. Watching on a regular TV set does not show much difference, but once to you go into larger sized screens you see a difference. And it annoys the hell out of me.
So, by going down from 3-8GB of data to a 4GB movie, I save about 1€. I am willing to pay this price to get the best quality possible.
this seems to contradict the wiki...
Yep that page is out of date... I've updated it with a warning. As Zaerc says earlier in this thread the Via's GPU's will handle UI1 ok (but you will need to build your own OpenChrome oe Unichrome drivers).
On the other hand the new ATOM based machines like the ASUS Eee Box and other built around the Intel i945GCLF motherboard offer a good alternative (especially the ASUS... comes complete with a VESA mounting kit).
All the best
