    EPIA (1.0+ GHz) boards and visualizations

    Can the EPIA boards do visualiztions while playing MP3s? Or not enough power?

    Really? Well let me rephrase: Which EPIA board can support visualizations (winamp etc) well (smooth frames, etc)?

    My friend has one and when I watched the vis it went chop chop chop, (5fps)


    Another problem is that some (all?) of the EPIA boards don't support 800x480..

    Which EPIA boards do work with 800x480 and Xenarc etc screens? (I know the M10000 doesn't )

    You know, I wanted some kickass visualizations for my mp3s. I have an EPIA M10000. I find that a lot of times the visualizations get choppy using Frodoplayer / Windows Media Player. Disappointing, yes, but there are some that come through very well. I'm hoping that a replacement video card or allocating more of the ram to the video will help. But for now, it's not great.

    512 megs. I think there's a way to assign more ram to video on the m10000, but I haven't really played with it yet.

    BIOS? AGP setting?

    I'd trying decide if EPIA is right for me, or try to accomodate a microATX system.

    Easiest to mount/install is an EPIA..since it's so small and compact

    I think it was something in the bios. I'm on Spring Break right now or I'd check the manual so we could have a more intelligent conversation about it. Anyone have an M10000 manual they can check to see if they can find what I'm talking about? Or know where you can get the manual online?

    Page 3-12 on the latter manual. I remember seeing it before, but I'm not 100 percent sure it is what I think it is. Nor do I know what the default is. Think this will help?
