So Nvidia touted the new "Advanced Video and Display Functionality" of the 6800, an ultra currently sits in my box, how do I use the video processor?

Your software has to support the encoding. Not to mention the software you're viewing has to be encoded in that format. Otherwise, it's automatic.

I use Pinnacle Studio 8 to do MPEG-4 encoding (yeah don't laugh, I'm just too lazy to find a better prog), do I need to do anything special when re-encoding from another format to MPEG-4 or will this take place automatically?

As long as you set your software to encode in mpeg4 you should be fine.

AFAIK divx player and nvdvd will support the 6x00 hardware codec.

BTW I've heard rumors about hardware video post processing a la ffdshow, that would be great.
