I don't see much use for gstreamer. How many media players actually use it? Totem is one, but totem blows goat.
Now... this new mythtv's release notes show "experimental crystalhd support". So cool! Unfortunately, it links to a page that hasn't been updated yet, so no telling HOW to make it work. Interesting thing about mythtv is that it says that the 970012 is not supported (actually disabled in code) -- the way it is worded suggests that the 970015 *does* work, since it refers to the 970012 as "the older". Good news for me
Definitely going to have to try this out.
