I'm nearly sure that is too much for the little Atom cpu. However you could use the excellent XBMCLive distro which makes use of VDPAU, hence even 1080p is no problem.

Has anyone found out of the ASRock ION 330 can do Power-On-USB or something similar so remotes can be used for starting it up?
I'm extremely close to buying one of these, but I want to make sure that I can get a remote to work well with it including power on via remote. Has anyone done this with with the ASRock and either XBMCLive or Ubuntu + XBMC?

On that web page I posted previously ( http://www.linuxtech.net/features/nvidia_ion_products_overview.html ) there are a couple of links to US dealers (assuming you are from the US) in addition to links to European dealers.

I bought up here in Canada from http://www.ncix.com - They do have a US side to their website I believe. $424 is what I paid, and I had it in my hands less than 48 hours after placing my order.

I have a Zotac ION ITX-A with Atom 330 (dual core) and ION chipset.
I have no trouble with 1080p. They run just smooth. Of course I use VDPAU on my Linux system. CPU utilization is low (about 11% with 1080p).
Is anybody using a Atom 230 ION system ? I would be interested to know how well it performs (expecially compared to Atom 330 dual core).
