And no, it doesn't support *all* the goodies -- the notable omissions
being hardware decode of divx/xvid (mostly insignificant, at
resolutions these codecs are typically used, software decode isn't
that taxing) and enough shaders to run the advanced 2x deinterlacer on
1080i playback. There are other less-demanding deinterlacers that do
work, and its hard to quantify the difference, but I definitely prefer
the picture off my gt220, which does advanced 2x on 1080i, over the
picture off my ion.
