The answer is very simple: I'm currently working on other things.

And as long as there isn't at least a (graphics) card that supports
decoding the "good old" MPEG2 in a quality that is at least as good
as that of the FF DVB cards, as well as decoding H.264/HDTV in *hardware*,
this whole area has next to no priority for me. I am not interested in
software decoding this stuff - I don't want to have an extra heater
in my living room ;-)
