Because VDPAU is a nVidia only proprietary API.  The message
"No VDPAU device" is the hint.  ATI has their own proprietary API,
but the only support for HW decoding with ATI cards in MythTV is
via the VAAPI API, although your mileage will vary as to how well
it works (some people have had success, others not so much; the
list archives have the reports).
