For PAL analog(ue) yes, but I don't know what they are doing with  
digital over there.

I think I saw something on this list about the BBC experimenting with  
MPEG-4 variants. That would take more CPU to decode and you can't get  
any help from XvMC, which only helps with MPEG-2.

So you may ultimately want to get a faster CPU.
