Hey, these words are from NVIDIA, not me:

As zbiggy says, (best explanation so far), the confusion appears to arise from marketing hype.

"The 6200 cannot decode H.264 streams. It never will"
These are fine words being put into people's mouths, but I'd really like to know the reason why the 6200 cannot decode H.264 streams. It is not what NVIDIA are saying in their adverts. There is probably some simple explanation, to do with the h/w architecture, but it sure would be nice to know.
