New to the list, so forgive me if I'm looking in the wrong place.

I'm looking for an MPEG-2 decoder that I can use under Linux; so far I
haven't been able to find a hardware or software solution (though there
are several software MPEG-1 decoders available).  Is there such a
decoder card for which Linux drivers have been or are being written?

Thanks

Ryan Bedwell

I too am new to the list and have similar questions. Are there drivers
availible for any of the current hadware MPEG2 boards under Linux? If not,
what is needed in order to develop these drivers? Will V4L or any other API
cater for either present MPEG2 decoders or upcoming ones such as the DVD
addon board for the Matrox G200 cards.

Is there any hope for Rainbow Runner-G support in V4L? I'm looking around
for a TV tuner and the Rainbow Runner-G with TV tuner looks like it will be
a good board but it will be utterly useless for video capture under Linux if
theres no support. Looks like I'll have to go for one of the BT484 cards
like the Miro PCTV.

Unless the XFree86 people have gotten somewhere with Matrox then probably
not in the short term. But do check with XFree86@xfree86.org - they unlike
me do have contacts in Matrox and will know how things stand
