I think the cost of producing such hardware HD cards doesn't make
sense when you can build a new pc that can handle software HD decoding
for cheap anyways. Also, as I understand, the chips which can do it
contain many other functions that are just a total waste when you put
the chip on a card to be only a HD decoder. Besides, I don't think
that many users are still using some ancient pc with a slow cpu like
Klaus has. Why would you bother when you can buy something way better
& faster for cheap these days?
