Yes, i also thought of this ! But i think the better way would be using a VGA
card with TV-Out (as Olivier Jacques did) and also using this one as primay
DVB device !
Okay, disadvantage is that normal tv watching need cpu cycles to decode mpeg2
streams for vga viewing - but this shouldn't be too much !
Maybe it's possible to force vga cards to make 720x576 or 784x576 resolution
(interlaced) so that an xserver (or svgalib) running could also synchronize
to the picture changes ....? This would be a great "vdr plugin" :-)
Maybe in the future ...
Then no one would have to change any emulators/games and stuff for TVOutput
(except for synchronizing, if they do not do at the moment ....)
