Try it ;-) Honestly: there are no specs how to use the mpeg2-Dekoder.
There's a library but no documentation who to use it...
We have to wait until via releases the sources (and hopefully some
programming specs), this should happen in the next 3 weeks.
Another problem is, that mplayer and xine seperate mpeg2-decoding and
video-output while with the epia-m it seems these two are strongly
connected. So it might be more difficult... ( I thought in the beginning,
that it would be easy too...)

That's what I want to do, but at first, get a normal x11-output-plugin
working and wait for the sources from via.

Using a full-featured dvb-card with mpeg2-decoder and tv-out already
