Display, yes.  Decode, no--it doesn't have enough CPU to do software 
decoding of HDTV MPEG-2 streams.  Also, TTBOMK, NVIDIA's proprietary 
video drivers won't work on the XBox, meaning you don't even get XvMC 
support to help with the decoding (although even with XvMC, you still 
wouldn't have the CPU required)...
