Well you will need to build/install the Via Unichrome Pro drivers or use the Openchrome drivers. But currently these drivers will only support UI1 fully.

OK now zonbu working. ok only UI1 but it's cheap  with the euros in 1.5 dollars.
I install drivers for CX700M2, i download in www.viaarena.com and install it in /usr/pluto/diskless/moon*
Now avwizard run, but mythtv not running correctly, the image is yellow.
Any solutions, please?
Thanks

Do you have any additional info or more detailed steps on installing the driver? For one, I download the CX700m file from that site, but i get a .run file. And when I look around my core for a /usr/pluto/diskess/... i dont see a moon, i just see the media director #'s i.e. "/usr/pluto/diskess/109"

ANy help would be appreciated.

those numbered directories are for each MD... and MD's are known as 'moons'. So to ssh into an MD you can do;

ssh moon109 <return>

The MD must be booted obviously to do this ;-)
