There streams that were give to me were MPEG2 at 16Mbps. I heard
that some discussion is going on about MPEG4, but at least here
in Germany that seems to be experimental only. The transition to
digital TV is fully in progress but the base technology is MPEG2.
I cannot comment on these.
Latest SNAP versions do have some MPEG decoding support for ATI cards,
but I'm not aware of any software taking advantage of it. AFAIK, some
SciTech customers for embedded solutions do, but they are not running
The advertising for this chip is somewhat misleading. The SAA7134 has
absolutely zero MPEG decoding capablity. It is used on some digital or
hybride TV cards, however in digital mode it only works as PCI bridge.
All cards using this chip are doing software decoding and if they are
sold as "PVRs" then the MPEG encoding is done by the host PC in software
