I don't question that but, then, how big do you consider the time skew to have audio and video tolerably in sync? I was assuming that receiving dvb-s programs, in-software decompressed by a processor in a shared memory proposition, was deemed common now. Also, it would seem that the whole sense of this list would be substantially lessen if only intelligent card (those capable of doing 100% hardware assisted processing - not counting which areas of code functionalities would be included in such assistance ) were supposed to correctly work.
