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).

sister board to this board, with less pci slots)
