Very surprised that VDPAU on an ION gives better pictures than the internal tuner, great to finally hear some "better than my TV" posts than the more usual "nearly as good as my TV".

I think Paul only has SD so it can for his needs.

Ah, I was suspecting that and I'd been hoping to replace my big(ish) noisy(ish) underclocked C2D & GT220 with something small and silent :-(

Why have Nvidia bothered to develop features like TS 2x when they release a whole bunch of supposedly HTPC chips that almost but not quite manage to run it, even for 50hz markets, makes no sense to me.
