I have been following this with interest since I bought all new hardware a while back to 'standardize' my MythTV frontends on VDPAU. It turns out that all three of my systems are C79s (a 9300 IGP, a 9400 IGP and a Zotac MAG) and I won't be enjoying these HD codecs when they are implemented unless I am willing to replace otherwise perfectly working hardware. Now, I am just following along waiting for a followup to these:

Indeed, it's hardly possible to go shopping for something from the following list

So far it looks like ION2 and GT430 are confirmed? Even if that GT425 were the most perfectly supported GPU, there is No Way am I going to spend ~$900 for it.
