Here is my two cents. I have a seven years old box and I am still using it. Basicly I only watch tvrips and browse webs, so it is ok. However, since today's tvrips I watch are in H264 720p format mostly, my box can't do this job anymore. I don't care about BD/HD-DVD, but I do want a hardware decoder to decode unprotected H264 content. I think other people on this forum already say this. We only want H264 decoding... Bridgeman, if it is Ok to release the H264 part of UVD, please release it. If the closed source driver is the only possible choice, please please make this driver decoding unprotected H264 content too, please!
