I don't know if MPNG is more like a movie file (AVI, QT, etc.) or if it's
more like an animated GIF.  Animated GIFs don't take up much resources
(sure they look like crap, but that's besides the point!).  With TiVo, I
think they are doing encoding/decoding via hardware so the task of UI and
encoding/decoding is split between two different processors.  At least,
thats what I *think* is going on under the TiVo hood.
