I'm about to put together an itx config based on ASRock 330 ION board, and I would like to use for DVB-S2 HD channels too. I believe most of the HD channels are broadcasted in 1080i and additional deinterlacing is needed. Is the ION powerful enough to do this with VDR? I see many of you are using this board, so I guess it would be fine, but want to check.
BTW, I have a HD Ready plasma, so I'm completely fine with 720p resolution, but the signal is 1080i, if this matters anything at all.
As far as I see it has an "Integrated NVIDIA® GeForce 9 Series" graphic chip.
On one of my boards I use an integrated GeForce8 chip which does the trick with vdpau bob(!) hardware deinterlacing. So this one should do at least the same. Without vdpau - I couldn't say.
