    Thanks to the folks over on #mythtv-users who pointed this out:
    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=124978

    It's a tool to show you the VDPAU capabilities of your card.
    Some of the output:

      Better use a code box, but was that from the 8400 GS? I see not VC1 support.

                    Interesting, what is your IGP memory size set to? Also what drivers are you running? 180.22's?

                      hmm.. I not sure and I'm not currently at home but I found following lines from nvidia-bug-report run.

                      Code:
                      (II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 8200 (C77) at PCI:2:0:0 (GPU-0)
                      (--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 524288 kBytes
                      (--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 62.77.2f.00.00
                      Driver is 180.22.

                      EDIT: Video mem is 256MB in bios.

                        It's odd that yours would report smaller height/width decoder capabilities compared to my 8200/780a chipset.

                            Ok, I just booted that machine and checked bios settings. Video ram size is set to 256MB. What advantages I get if I increase video mem to 512MB? I'm just going to playback different kind of videos (mpeg1-2, xvid, h264, vc-1 etc) and do some web surfing.

                              hi,
                              what does "level" stand for? I heard the 9400s support PureVideo3. Wikipedia says the third generation includes "Bitstream Processing" for VC-1 does the "level" tell me whether its supported or not? I'd like to buy a 8200 board but Im not sure about PV3.
