Yes, that would be dull, I suspect we're going to see more of that going 
on as broadcasters start putting out more H.264 over DVB-x people with 
marginal front ends that support XvMC (doesn't help with MPEG4) will 
have to transcode down to MPEG2 before watching.

Fingers crossed Dave Airlied will one day give us XvMC for Radeons 
though he seems to have given up on that, guess he way buzzy with 
nouveau and other stuff.
