Okay, I've held out a few hours to see if anyone else would post
first, but I can't resist. (Plus, about to head to bed).

Adobe just posted a flash player 10.2 beta binary, with VDPAU support,
and initial testing shows marginally > 0% cpu utilization playing back
1080p flash video.

So all those ion boxes just got a lot more interesting (and the
crystalhd got a bit less interesting at the same time). Should make
mythnetvision a lot more usable for a fair number of people...

I certainly plan to poke at it more Real Soon Now. Annoyed that they
continue to let 64-bit support lag -- develop with 64-bit support in
mind to begin with (or develop *only* on 64-bit), then 32-bit support
is a piece of cake. Ugh. Anyway...
