Default Re: Will the H.264 decoding have a linux driver?

I am thinking about putting together a linux box to run MythTV. I want it to support playback of 720p and 1080i resolution HDTV encoded in H.264 format. I want to minimize power consumption and fan noise, so I am looking for a video card with H.264 hardware support instead of relying on an ultrafast main CPU. The problem is, as of today (April 2 2007) I can find no video card that offers hardware support for this that works under Linux. This thread seems to be more than a year old but there is still no news, is that correct?
