 	Hey all.  I'm looking to get a pcHDTV card soon, but wanted to 
know if I'll have to redo my frontend as well.  I've looked through the 
archives some, but there's a pretty low SNR on actual information.

 	Assuming an NVIDIA card (FX5200 or GF4-440), how much CPU is 
*actually* required?  The whole point of XvMC is that the vid card does 
the MPEG decoding, so it shouldn't take too much.

 	What say you all?
