I'm using ffmpeg decoding in playback and it consumes 25-30% of Pentium-M
running at 800 MHz (which can scale up to 1.73 GHz). Even when recording
with one channel with DVB-C and doing simultaneous playback and
commercial detection it seldom went over 800 MHz in 0.23-fixes. With
0.24-fixes CPU goes to 1.73 GHz and commercial detection ends almost same
time as recording.

My machine can't handle this at all. That's why I'm looking passive single
slot VPDAU card. But atleast in Finland they are hard to find:(.
