As the nVidia PureVideo drivers use DirectShow Codecs/Filters to know
what/where/when to accelerate, and Myth isn't using DShow, Myth would
see no benefit whatsoever from PureVideo (Or AVIVO for you ATI fans

I believe it would take a major architecture change (Which would also
break Myth on every other platform) to implement DShow in
