For Beginners in Linux, Emulation, Midis, Playstation Info, and
I have one of these puppies in my machine which I'd like to be able to
use (ie. I WANT TO WRITE A DRIVER IF POSSIBLE). It's not one of the VGA
pass thru cards like the Creative DXR2 but rather looks like the
computer feeds MPEG2 stream and it sends back decompressed data back to
the computer/video card for display and sound directly out to sound
Okay... I don't care much about DVD movies with all their proprietary
stuff at this time but would like to use it for rapid MPEG I/II decoding
for my own movies and maybe the occassional VideoCD.

1. Are there drivers in this class in existence which I can use as a
foundation to build upon?
2. Are there "standards" or interface guidelines which can be followed
to build such a beast - and hopefully future programs can take advantage
3. Anyone else working on something similar!?
