Some DVB-S & MPEG-2 1080i demo channels still run on Sirius 5.0E. Works 
quite well with xine xxmc and 720p DVI/HDMI output to a LCD TV. The 
problem is that the HW deinterlacer in my FX5200 card is poor quality 
with some jagged moving edges. High quality SW deinterlacers such as 
GreedyH run only in "cheap" mode in my Sempron 3100+ CPU. Anyway cheap 
mode quality is not that bad.

My first tests with Nvidia 6200 and new HW deinterlacer look quite 
promising. I might also try 1080i mode with xxmc and deinterlacing in TV 
(5200 is not capable to 1080i trough DVI).

There is also support for MPEG-4 decoding in 6xxx 7xxx series nvidia 
cards but unfortunately not supported in Linux. Only MPEG-2 acceleration 

I wish Klaus would upgrade some day to DVB-S2 and soft HDTV decoding :^)
