I read (here) that there are already some Windows applications that can use 
the CrystalHD device, but I'm not sure what they might be. I know that 
Broadcom claims support for FlashPlayer 10.1.

For Linux, I believe XBMC can take advantage of it.

I'm wondering about de-interlacing, as opposed to decoding. This is why I'm 
now happy to have a single machine with both the ION and the CrystalHD, so I 
can make comparisons between the two, but it will be a while before I get to 
that point.
