Xvmc on a Linux HTPC/8400 gs
I guess I should of researched this combo before I got into it(abit NF-M2S) and 8400gs for HDTV out

just found out today the 8xxx cards do not support Xvmc under linux on these cards , what I like to know is the driver support close to happening or to long to wait and I need to look into the 7xxx cards

I am going to get a abit an-m2HD , it has the 7050 gpu and I want to end with with the hdmi and 2 dvi's , question which pci-x card matches the 7050 GPU
with 2 DVI's

I am also not happy that I have not found a solution to the image cutoff problem
on my Samsung 4667W dlp
and I have read a lot about that on here

this is on Gutsy

I understand that XvMC is not a high priority, so it could be a long wait.

There is no XvMC for Geforce 8xxx. Do not expect to see it someday. Such low priority features are implemented at the beginning or never. Soon there will be another new Geforce to support so nobody will have time to write XvMC for older Geforces 8. And since 1.4.99 it seems there is major ABI break so Nvidia would prefer to work on this issue which is very smart move.
