For all the HTPC fans out there

Many have probably traded in the HTPC for more "everyone else" friendly, traditional but not as flexible or high picture quality offerings such as traditional STB dvd players, etc. Well, this new mb from Soyo looks VERY promising:

You can get the benefit of outputing via the vga (read: better than progressive scan if they support higher than 640x480 natively) without the bloat of an OS installed. Since I'm in the market for a new DVD player, I'd gladly throw down that $200-300 on this plus some RAM and the video option (video, from what I've read, will have TV functions as well and still work at the BIOS level). Now if they'd just wise up and get an AMD version in the works!!
