VIA Micro ATX motherboard install issues
« on: January 23, 2009, 01:55:50 am »
Anyone have any install issues when using a VIA Micro ATX MB as a MD? I bought a VIA board with a 1 GHz processor and its acting flaky. I upped the RAM to a GIG but it still acts weird when trying to use the S-Video or composite out video signal. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately the only suggestion I have is use it for something else other than lmce.

It looks better for 0810 but for 0710 the via drivers suck. unless that has changed recently.

 I'd have to agree with the previous poster. I had two VIA boxes. Sold one, waiting to replace the other. Tried new VIA video drivers, but could never get video from all the pieces to display properly.

 I fell back to MythBuntu on those two boxes, and just network mapped to the media folders on the server. It works, it's fine, but it's not LinuxMCE.

You could also try out XBMC on that box, with the MythTV Python script.
