    yeah unfortunately i doubt anything but the total top end linux box will have the processing power to decode this...

    h.264 isn't that what apple shout about in their quicktime stuff?

    and isn't that what the ipod video uses?

    well thats definately interesting news that its emerged into digital television. i wonder when we'll start getting clone dreams supporting h.264... LOL

    The h.264 software decoders are available for PCs to decode HD channels. These decoders are resource hoggers and fails to give even a decent picture on a modest PC. A very powerful and dedicated PC would give better results.

    To overcome this, the hardware manufacturers should be developing dedicated decoder chips for h.264 that can decode HD signals in real time.

    What happens to Dream Box users? Can they receive Mpeg4 or not?

    unfortunately mate, we'll all have to have new super powerful boxes... once they have developed an instruction specific chip then we'll all get new boxes...

    dream hopefully will bring out a new box that will manage it...

    but i highly doubt that the boxes will be able to deal with the xtreme requirements of the codec... i mean even my Apple G3 dual processor 500 mhz (faster chips than dreambox) struggle and fail on HD with H.264 and Quicktime

    But then lot of people have invested in Dream Box which I think is not cheap. Sun Dth is going to use Mpeg 4 (not HD tv offcourse). They should be cheap or else how can they sell their boxes?

    There were some news regarding Sun dth using Mpeg4. After reading the posts by Alexius, Az30094 I also doubt whether it is true.
