Wow.  That's amazing.  How do you display three HD streams
simultaneously?  Do you have three video cards?  I'm curious -- do you
use component out, or do your HD displays have VGA input?

I'm really impressed.  When I used an Athlon XP 2800 it couldn't even
keep up with ONE stream at 1080i.  But displaying a moving image at
1920x1080i is pretty daunting.  I'm really amazed that you can display
three 1920x1080i pictures on three high-def display devices using
software decoding.

Incredible.  Literally incredible!
