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? _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
