I'm trying to figure out if this mini frontend by Zotac:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6856173006 (Zotac ZBOX-HD-AD01 with AMD 780E Radeon HD 3200)
is going to work for minimyth. I know that basically anything will work on some level, but I'm looking for GPU-acceleration under minimyth. I tried doing some google searches, but I keep getting conflicting results regarding linux support and AMD graphics chipsets.
Anyone who knows whats going on right now care to weigh in? Worst case I can always go with an ION based one, but that's more money (of course!).
The ATI/AMD GPU proprietary drivers are needed to get any GPU based video decoding acceleration with ATI/AMD GPU hardware. MiniMyth contains only the Open Source ATI/AMD GPU drivers.
In addition, in order to get more advanced GPU based video decoding acceleration (e.g. H.264 decoding acceleration) with these drivers, the library that maps ATI/AMD GPU prorietary driver API to VA-API is needed and the application needs to support VA-API. MiniMyth does not contain the mapping library and MythTV does not yet have VA-API support.
