You need to read about, Gentoox works fine on a 1.6, apart from the overscan support, Oh and no temp sensing. It depends what you want from your xbox, I am using my 1.6 as a NAS box so don’t need the screen, I just SSH/web in. If you want to use it as a ‘proper’ Linux box I would (in my opinion) get a < 1.5 board off eBay, until the over scan problem is fixed by some brain.
