You will need to wait until the unichrome project (sourceforge is your
friend =:-D) has the mpeg4 stuff working. I don't think they have the
docs from VIA yet.

I am using Epia M 10000 with VDR 1.3.21n vdr-xine 0.7.1 and a Skystar2.
The mpeg2 acceleration uses between 10-15% CPU with either DVD or DVB-S
mpeg2 streams. I don't have access to mpeg4 streams.
