Just to make it absolutely clear and sum it up..

Available outputs:

576i: HDMI, Component (YUV), Svideo, Composite
576p: HDMI, Component (YUV) both 576p/i, Svideo (576i), Composite (576i)
720p: HDMI and Component (YUV)
1080i: HDMI and Component (YUV)
1080p: Not supported?

And for 576i/p you can have both component and composite at the same time,
or then only svideo from the analog output?

What kind of scaling is supported by the card? 

Also, is MPEG1 decoding supported? I guess that's the easiest format to
encode to if wanting to play videos encoded with non-supported codecs..

Next I was about to ask for OSD support, but I guess it was already answered
on another mail.. so this card has OSD support? How many colors or other
limitations? 

Thanks a lot! This card looks like really interesting..
