What GPU does the nvidia ION A type board have? Wikipedia lists it as
NVIDIA PureVideo HD. And if you look that up on wikipedia then it
could be any of the GPUs
Ideally you would like to have the 9400/9500 type GPU that can do both
h264 and VC1.

(http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=135840). But if we
use mplayer or Xine to, then it should in theory it should be able to
do Flash HD?
What is your setup like? Do you use VDR as the main application or do
you use something like XBMC with VDR or do you load a plugin on VDR to
play flash type movies? Which output plugin do you guys use? I
currently use xineliboutput 1.0.4. It does have its short comings but
very good for Live TV.
