Yes, it looks like I'll have to exceed my budget by quite a bit.
Circuit City has the HAU 980 you mention for $149.99 + tax. $165 after tax
here in Jackson. :-(
It seems like a card that does the encoding/decoding onboard is the way to go,
rather than letting the CPU do it, eh?

Excellent! That's reassuring. :-)
I have a ATI Mach64 3D Rage iiC video card.
8 MB PCI.
Will that be OK? It will play .mpg files full-screen, but they're too
jittery, so I watch them in a window.

I already have atrpms-stable, good, testing and bleeding in my /etc/yum.conf,
although they're commented out.
Which should I uncomment?
Sounds too good to be true.
Are you saying it worked perfectiy out of the box?
You didn't have to install any drivers or do any mind-boggling configuration?
Are you running both the front-end and back-end on your main workstation?

Right, I suppose that's a must for a PVR noob. :-)
