Absolutely, MythTV will work out of the box with that with much less hassle 
than a 780G ATI chipset.

It will easily cope with SD playback, not so sure re HD. But VDPAU is coming 
sooner rather than later, its already IMHO at beta status, and there is 
nothing equivalent to it on ATI.

I see no reason to buy ATI at all.
