Marvel isn't a DVD decoder as such, but a video input & output card. It
does have a hardware MJPEG CODEC but that's bugger all use for MPEG. It
still relies mainly on software decoding of the MPEG video stream.
Matrox MGA do make a hardware MPEG decoder daughterboard but it's only
for G100 and G200, not the sexier G400 and G400 MAX. I don't think it's
supported in any case.
