I have found the EPIA ME6000 boards to work well for standard definition
and DVD playback. For software, I run MiniMyth 0.18beta1
<http://linpvr.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=340>. This combination allows
for no disk drives or fans in the front end.
In addition, I am working on a version of MiniMyth that supports the
CN400, so that I can have HD playback using the fanless EPIA SP8000E.
