Depends on how you look at it. I got mine for almost 1,5 years now and
I've been able to see and hear HDTV without problems. Yes, the other
plugins for mediaplayback seem to have problems with a vanilla VDR setup.
But currently I use ReelVDR anyway and it works like a charm and without
the problems I have with a vanilla VDR setup ;)

I've been experimenting with VDPAU for a while. And yes, it's the next big
thing when it comes to hardware accelerated playback. But since I need to
put in an additional NVIDIA based videocard with Purevideo HD
capabilities, I rather use my onboard intel for X.org and stick to my eHD
until I have the money to get me a Atom based device with an ION chipset
