Starting from there, I stumbled upon VIA open-source initiative now 
effective:

iDCT, MC and MPEG4 acceleration are low on the list, but the goal is to 
replace the VIA driver with Openchrome, meaning that VIA will support 
FOSS developpers...

It seems that things are really moving, and VDR-HD may finally work with 
cheap hardware by the time HD material is commonplace.
