I doubt that nVidia engineers believe it is only a
SiliconDust issue, but SD is (likely) one of the
few corporate contractual engagements using
MPEG-2, protected path, and MCDI, making it
more of an issue, and getting traction in the
org mgmt.  And without hardware MCDI the
result is not good enough for people who care
about quality and receive interlaced content,
and can tell the difference; the only good news
is that a not insignificant number of people
either can't tell the difference, or have their TV's
set to muddy the picture so that it all looks
equally bad, or simply are in denial (cheap is
good).
