That's what I figured. At a very minimum I would need something that
can handle 1080i with a decent deinterlacer used, 1920x1080 hdmi out,
surround sound (via hdmi out). Basically something on par with Nvidia
vdpau. Hardware isn't the problem though, seems the only thing lacking
is the software and maybe in time that will exist/mature.
