Well obviously when your ancient pc can't handle new things such as h264 decoding and HDTV, and no manufacturer is willing to waste their money making a hardware decoder card, I would say it's not working just fine as you claim. Sorry, a small handful of people using ancient pc's for dvb is not even vaguely enough for manufacturers to create h264 hardware decoder cards. And even if they did actually bring one to market, meaning you can BUY it and not just look at it on a website, the cost would be too much. If there's such a market for hardware decoding, where are all the cards? How come manufacturers aren't jumping at the chance to capture the profits from people like you with old slow pc's in need of such cards? I'm sure somebody somewhere still drives a Ford Model-T car, 'because it still works'. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
