The Tivo has an MPEG-2 encoder/decoder chip that does all the video
processing - the only thing the Tivo CPU has to do is run the system,
keep track of the time and draw the menus. Mythtv is doing
everything in software.
And no, none of the MPEG-2 cards out there right now have good Linux
drivers, so that's why Mythtv doesn't use them.
