It makes no sense to me supporting  something
which can't be used with hdtv stuff in one year!
This wastes development time for non working and almost outdated stuff.
Doing h264 decoding in software isn't praticable.
I see the problems regarding the EHD from reel.
Micronas doesn't develop afaik this stuff any more and paying allmost 200 EUR for 
a decoder card hmm ???????
My favourite solution will be decoding h264 with a strong gpu.
Maybe vdpau?

Just my 2 cents.
