Well, looks like the people who pointed out that this chip doesn't decode h.264 are right. Neither could I find any other decoder chip on the VIA web pages that would do that. So this is actually a "no go" for the EPIA boards for decoding HD-TV video. That means I was wrong and we really *don't* have the needed hardware *today*, not to mention Linux support. Remains to be seen if VIA (or some other manufacturer) comes up with a small, low power consumption MB with h.264 hw decoding or if we see a FF DVB-S2 card before that. In the meantime there is no hurry, I'm happy with the current VDR :-) Ondrej _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
