I'm not entirely sure about the G35 series being supported well yet.
But, as it's derived from the 965 chipset (GMA X3000), I believe it
should be pretty similar and have seen commits from some of the Intel
developers specific to the G35 chipset. I have an ASUS P5B-VM with the
965 chipset and it's been working fine for me.

I haven't tried using it on a TV or anything like that, though.
