AFAIC no plans for that at the moment - sorry.

AFAIK mpeg2 based HDTV works right out of the box. I will probably start
working on H.264 if all of the following conditions are met:
- Linux and VDR support for DVB-S2 and H.264
- H.264 FTA channels on Astra which are halfway worth the effort
- Affordable way to decode it in hardware without generating to much noise
- Component output of HDTV not threatened by broadcast flag / DRM

Cheers,
Frank
