The support for MPEG-4 comes in the form of codecs included on a CD that 
is shipped with the card. The card itself supports MPEG-4 just like any 
other: regardless of the encoding used the card passes the broadcasted 
material to a piece of software, which in turn tries to decode it. VDR 
can also do that when patched with Reinhard Nissl's h.264 patch and used 
together with a software output plugin.
