[LinuxBIOS] Recommendation for multimedia box

Hello mailinglist,


I'm currently in the process of finding some suitable hardware for a multimedia box. The box needs to be capable to output sound/video, but this should be no problem: Even if the mainboard does not have support for a/v, I'm sure that there are a lot of USB solutions out there which might do the trick. I want to have really fast boot up times (a few seconds), so I was looking into the linuxbios project. From reading the list of supported mainboards/devices, I see that finding the ~right~ hardware is not a trivial task.


Do you have any recommendations what kind of hardware I could use? And where would I get replacement BIOS chips for the hardware, just in case something goes wrong?


Thanks in advance,

Tilman Klar
