There has been a discussion that the xbox's CPU doesn't have the
horsepower to decode HDTV streams, so it's not usable for displaying
what you would record with the pcHDTV card.

My Athlon 2500+ pegs its CPU playing 1080i with Xv support, splitting
about 80/20 between xine and the X server; with XvMC support, it's about
80% used, just by xine (20% idle).
