So, am i reading this right?  nVidia should have h.264 hardware
acceleration!?  That mean the proc required for the HD-PVR will go
substantial down right and play ripped blu-rays?

Also, I wonder if this has all the negatives of XvMC.  Will we get full
color OSD?  Will there be buffering/choppy video issues?  I assume the
internal player will require patches.  yet another reason i may be moving to
trunk when that is released.....
