And will it play HDTV streams at 1.3 Ghz? Without hw acceleration my VIA
M10000 is used at 60-80% on live TV or DVD playback. OK it is not a
Celeron but I have seen Celeron M usage figures for mpeg2 playback over
50% CPU. What happens when you have other processus running (vdradmin
and epg scan springs to mind)?

When you max out a M10000 it gets hot. I would not want a machine using
over 50% CPU on a regular basis in a cabinet under my TV... VIA may be
what it is but one thing going for them is HW mpeg2 acceleration.
