I hadn't realised the 901 was classed as supported. I have one I've been using 
as an ad-hoc media centre but windows really sucks and the quality of support 
for various dvb usb sticks is really bad. On linux I've found even the most 
flakey devices seem to run acceptably.

What is the current state within netbsd for multiple displays, dri, dvb 
support etc? Anyone pushing all these features on theirs?

My first instinct was to throw linux on it as I only really use netbsd in 
server environments these days but netbsd has always been my preference.

Any information appreciated. It's highly likely I'll start the install anyway 
but if there's going to be a show stopper, let me know :)
