Well, what do you plan to watch on it? If you're just going to decode
MPEG2, something as lowly as an ME6000 would do the job (with xvmc + the
onboard MPEG2 decoder), and it's fanless to boot. OTOH, if you plan to
watch other material (eg, MPEG4, etc), you'll want something with a bit more
heft. If you're happy with fans, I'd probably go for something like the
M10000. It's popular, seemingly well supported, and should be able to
handle any SD content you'd throw at it.
Regardless, other than the more recent boards (like my EN12000EG :( ), the
driver support for the EPIAs is pretty solid, so you should be okay,
whatever you choose. You can take a look at the wiki on
www.openchrome.orgto see which video chipsets are currently supported.
