I can share my experience with you. I've got an intel
DG965OT board with x3000 video hardware. I'm using it
to watch OTA HDTV and it works very well. The one
problem I have with it is video tearing, because
syncing to vertical refresh is not supported in the
driver yet. My understanding is that they are working
on it. It's a little annoying, but I'm still enjoying
mythtv a lot despite this one issue.
I never got on board sound to work with this board,
digital or otherwise. I ended up purchasing a sound
card. I don't see anyone else with this issue, so it
may have been a problem with me or bad hardware.
There are no discrete intel graphics cards at this
