Many of the newer STBs in the US can now do H.264/mpeg4 avc
(I have no idea if any provider is using that capability yet, but I
presume they will eventually).  Clearly nVidia and VDPAU also
support H.264 decode, although I seem to recall that some of the
older chips have some limitations (which may, or may not,
actually matter for the content you are trying to display).
