That's as may be... however, it does seem to be ignoring those of us who
happen to want video output in a window (as I do now with vdr & gxine). If
there's any taintware involved in that, I for one don't want it.
(And I couldn't care less about it right now, at least for my own use -
there's no terrestrial HD broadcasting here and there won't be until 2012 at
the earliest, that being when analogue transmission is switched off.)
