Unhappy Re: No XVMC with 8500 and 100.14.03 Beta

I filed a bug report on this with nvidia, and received the following email back...

Hi Max,

Thanks for writing. Currently, XVMC is not supported on the 8500GT.
For the time being, the older 6800 card that you have will need to be
used for XVMC support.

This is pretty disappointing. It looked like the fanless gigabyte 8500gt was the perfect card for an inexpensive linux based home theater pc, but if they don't fix XVMC it is way less attractive.

I'm still getting reasonable performance without XVMC with a dual core pentium D 805, but 1080i HDTV content seems to have some issues.
