I am interested in your experiences with xineliboutput-plugin and 
vdr-sxfe for HDTV and not using VDPAU but using the plain CPU-power.

The plan would be to build a simple system without any special 
graphics-card and no special X11-configuration or driver, perhaps some 
cheap system like the one descibed in http://ct.de/-1375124 (German).
(Celeron G1820, small case, low power consumption, about 180 EUR without 

I know from my own VDR-systems, that a Intel Core2 Duo @ 1.86GHz or a 
Core i3 540 @ 3.07GHz has far enough power to run VDR and vdr-sxfe for 
displaying HDTV.

But I think even slower and thus cheaper CPUs could do the 
HDTV-decoding, too.

What is you experience?
Would it be possible to use these new Haswell-Celerons?

TIA and best regards,
