And, of interest to more people (i.e. those who buy an appropriate CPU 
for their systems so they don't need XvMC) is the fact that the playback 
picture controls (brightness/contrast/colou{0,1}r/hue) don't work 
without the overlay.  So, if you like to adjust 
brightness/contrast/etc., the 5200 is a better choice (for now) than the 
6200.  Once it's end-of-lifed, though...
