    HD3xxx series *does* have UVD. RHD-2xxx even.

    Or is it just fake-UVD ala shaders (aka the gallium3d plan)?
    If it is just fake-UVD, then why the distinction between R3100 (780V chipset) and RHD3200 (780G chipset)? 3100 just not strong enough? Or is it a question of being disabled in the drivers?
    HD2900 has Fake UVD there is no UVD unit.. but hd2900 is a powerfull monsterchip... this GPU can handle ALL ! be sure!
    some hd2xxx has fake chip ans some others as UVD
    all HD3000 has UVD part,, but not UVD2 part...

    but for linux H264 is patented no one want this s..t and UVD/UVD2 can not accelerat Theora/Dirac

      Has anyone actually used this to watch a whole movie? It doesn't seem very stable to me.. I get fairly consistent mplayer hangs:

        I bought a 3850 two years ago and believed eventually my card would have hardware acceleration support. Now this day comes. But thank you ATI. You really makes me feel upset/betrayed. AMD/ATI you betray all faithful buyers who bought your RV6xx even though the performance was worse than Nvidia. I can tolerate the buggy fglrx, I can tolerate my wine broken all the time, but why fglrx can't even bring a small happiness to its RV6xx buyer?! I really think my requirement for fglrx is quite low. I just want hardware acceleration for video decoding so I can watch some 1080p video in linux environment. ATI/AMD, you really break my heart.

          @monraaf

          Did you check with mediainfo the codec used?

            [mkv] Track ID 1: video (V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC)
            [mkv] Track ID 2: audio (A_AC3)

            It plays fine till a certain scene and then hangs mplayer.

              That directly crashes here. Your info is not what i wanted to see.

                What app do you use to get that? I don't have an app 'mediainfo'

                    You'll get decode acceleration one way or another - might be open source drivers, might be fglrx.
