Wow, thanks for the link! Very good to hear nv's working on it. :)

I really want encoding though, it would definitely help with getting videos on the PSP.

Is there anyway I can test this on my setup?

Not yet. The Cyberlink decoder and the nVidia driver should be here by April, just in time for HD-DVDs release.

Does anyone know if the geforce 6800 agp series will also support H.264 encoding and decoding? I remember the whole thing about the video processor being partially non-working on the 6800 series so WMV couldn't be decoded but I was wondering if anyone knows if the H.264 decoding is also broken?

All 6800 AGP series(NV40/NV45) has broken OVP.

It should work even with cards with a broken OVP since H.264 decoding isn't offloaded to the OVP, but to the pixel shaders for processing. Similar to how ATi does it.
