And as long as there isn't at least a (graphics) card that supports decoding the "good old" MPEG2 in a quality that is at least as good as that of the FF DVB cards, as well as decoding H.264/HDTV in *hardware*, this whole area has next to no priority for me. I am not interested in software decoding this stuff - I don't want to have an extra heater in my living room ;-) Klaus Hi Klaus. I'm a big fan of you, VDR and Eagle since many years. I always agree with your postings and read them with great interest, but this is the first time I have to disagree. My VDR livingroom client consumes 30-35W from AC mains when running sw mpeg2 SD decode, deinterlace and scaling. Using Reinhards patches to play h.264 720p it increases to 40-45W, while my LCD runs at about 125W. So using modern pc hardware, software decoding doesn't really create a heater in my opinion. I'm sure an old 450MHz K6 uses more than that. My setup: AMD BE-2300: €70 Abit AN-M2HD: €80 1GB no-name DDR2: €20 Mini-box picoPSU-80: €50 total: €220 btw Klaus: I'm an everyday Cadsoft Eagle user since five years and I still haven't had a single crash or even found a bug in it. Having used all the high-end E-CAD system there is I can say that this is unheard of in the industry. I guess you have something to do with that, or what is your position at Cadsoft? /Magnus Hörlin _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
