PCMCIA DVD decoder card

We are proud to announce the first driver for the Margi/Bilionton DVD-to-Go PC-Card that does not need a Zoomed Video (ZV) enabled notebook. The open source driver (GPL) is available for Linux kernel version 2.2.x together with pcmcia-cs later than 3.1.15. It allows to playback MPEG1/2 files on your notebook using the TV-output of the Margi/Bilionton PC-card. It also allows DVD playback using the dvdplayer application developed by Convergence. It supports AC3 sound. The ZV port is currently not supported due to the lack of information from graphic card manufacturers.
