Is there any information regarding availability or pricing on the HDTV PCI

and this sounds promising :-)
Availability not earlier than August/September, the price isn't fixed yet.
There is other hardware that does mpeg2/4/h.264 decoding, the lacking
piece is always proper open source drivers.
Do you have any links/info for such cards ?
Will this hardware have open source drivers / open specifications?
I checked out the latest Reelbox testing svn code and browsed the code to
see if it supports this device. I didn't look too thoroughly but it appears
the reelbox-0.9.0 plugin does support it. It looks like communication to
the kernel space driver is done through shared memory and I did see some
kernel space code to create this shared memory device (/dev/hdshmem). I'm
sure there is a closed source firmware or kernel module that is also used
but since Reelbox is based on vdr this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
