I know, me being among the first ones :-)

But as you said: H/W mpeg decoder, which goes with a h/w mpeg encoder as
the pvr250 or combined en-/decoder as the pvr350. S/W mpeg2 encoding is
out of the question on the EPIA, divx encoding might just be ok, but
doing both and the bandwidth for the 2 uncompressed and the 2 compressed
streams will kill of the small thing i guess.
