broadcom? yea right, someone will likely have to be willing to buy 50,000 before they will even start producing them and then you'll need to be willing to buy 10-20,000 unless someone like digi-key decides to stock it. They made a cool tuner chip that handled most if not all current sat formats, but it never went to production because no one would commit to a insane quanity.

Any thoughts?

VDR runs just fine on a seagate dockstar, so I see no reason why it
shouldn't run on this device, but I don't believe that it has enough power
show the TV signal via hdmi.

Not so sure, depending on driver availability:

OpenGL ES 2.0
1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode

Well lets see, when it apears, if it will be available to normal
people AND if the required driver will be there too.

It's broadcom, so I doubt it: the wolf may lose his teeth but never his nature.
At most (if anything) we'll get a binary blob tied to a specific kernel version
with no possible upgrade path.
