Been there, done that already :-) The HDE from Reel decodes h264, I wrote a
lot of the driver stuff for it. So there is (at least one) h264-decoder
card, and btw, vdr is the main platform for the HDE.

There are rumours that Ati is planning such drivers... In the long term
special decoder cards will vanish, but I think it will still take some time.
