It's still good news to know that open-source software allowing current fanless integrated motherboards to decode HDTV at ~10% CPU is on its way... Going from 87% of 2 cores, to ~10% of an entry level CPU is good, specially when the load is taken care of by existing chips. I'd like to have full-HDTV on a single x86 mini-ITX board. I'm now seeing this will happen soon enough, and I'll wait until then before I spend money on new hardware. -- NH _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
