Definitely stay away from VIA.
I started working on MiniMyth because I wanted a small frontend and
MiniMyth was tailored to the VIA EPIA M mainboard. My initial MythTV
frontends were VIA EPIA mainboards (one M and one SP).
However, VIA dropped the ball. In the seven years since I started
contributing to MiniMyth, VIA has done nothing to make their graphics
hardware available to Open Source applications. As a result, VIA
graphics hardware is useless when it comes to Open Source multimedia
applications such as MythTV.
At this time, I use Atom+ION2 based hardware for small frontends and
AMD+NVIDIA for normal frontends.
