i'm intressted in the EEEbox 206(AMD/ati) and a Nvidia ION one.
Both architectures includes HD(en/de)coding but i'm not sure with of this is better.

The Nvidia one owns this as a "feature" however ati merged a normal GPU with a set-top-box GPU. =/

ATI 4350
# Integrated AMD Xilleon™ HDTV encoder

* Provides high quality analog TV output (component/S-video/composite)
* Supports SDTV and HDTV resolutions
* Underscan and overscan compensation

# MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV9, VC-1, and H.264/AVC encoding and transcoding

Nvidia 9400
NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series and above incorporate a revolutionary new video processing architecture, making them them capable of offloading Blu-ray video decoding (H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2) from the CPU.

I'm not sure if the 9400 can handle HDTV-streams ,do anyone know this??
I hope anyone can give me some information about the Mediacenter usability.
