    If your machine does not need to be 100% silent it is a good mb.
    If you want more info about this mb and HD video playback have a look at this site: Intel® HD Video

    Well, just wanted to say that I set up my new Zotac ION motherboard (Atom 330) and it runs quite nicely - plays both 720p and 1080p (even though in 1080p I noticed that the only 1080p video I have is a little jerky for couple of seconds, but not sure whether that is the file itself, as the CPU is about 5-10%). Very satisfied - my little box is hanging behind my TV on the VESA mount and I cannot hear it at all. I think this $300 investment is the best one I made in HTPC in the last couple of years.

    XP SP3 with latest updates for OS and SAF codec/filter pack made by Hoborg and that's it. Mind you I haven't set up TV yet, so I'm not sure about implications there, but I never had problems with that in the past in MP.

    The 1080p file I have is h.264, not WMV, but I don't think that should be much different in terms of CPU load?

    WMV is decoded by Microsoft codecs, so there is a lot of difference to e.g. mkv with h264.
    but you can't play 1080i .ts files? this is the only thing i'm fighting with...

    Yes, fair enough, WMV is a totally different beast. If I get my hands on WMV I will try it out. As for 1080i .ts files - I haven't tried them, but earlier in this thread (page 4?) few people were discussing 1080i issues - MP wasn't selecting proper codecs, but with MPC-HC it plays just fine. So, not really sure.. If you use SAF codec/filter pack and have issues your best bet is to ask in that thread - maybe someone already dealt with that issue?

    Actually I just tried 1080p (not i) .ts file and it works flawlessly. But then again - it worked good even in the old times when my HTPC was P4 3Ghz. Something I heard long time ago about .ts files being much easier to handle since they are just a data stream.

    Hope this helps.
