ProgDVB and Twinhan

You must use the correct filter graph otherwise you will get the blocky pictures. Also I 1ghz does not have enough horsepower unless you have everything else off. I do not even use my 1020A since I got my Nexus -S. Flawless performance and less than 5% CPU power usage.

Nexus -S with 4:2:2 and HD

Will the Nexus -S do 4:2:2 and HD? Also how does it compare to the 1020 A in terms of price and minimum computer requirements?

The hardware decoder on the nexus will do neither 4:2:2 SD nor HD and will not do 4:2:0 HD either. It's only good for 4:2:0 SD and most any semi-modern computer can handle that just fine in software. Having said that it's possible to use the nexus for signals that are 4:2:2 and/or HD with the right software but when you do so the nexus is just functioning as a tuner only just the same way as any of the other cards which don't have an onboard decoder, like the twinhan cards. So, basically in any modern system the hardware decoder on the Nexus card is useless and only serves to make the card cost more, use more power, and run hotter. Basically as a rule of thumb if you have a computer that's too slow to play regular DVDs (500Mhz Pentium II or less) then you might need the Nexus card. Otherwise youd be better off going with something else and spending the extra money on other parts of your system (like maybe getting a bigger dish). Anyway, that's my opinion on the matter. Others may disagree.

I don't disagree, you hit the nail on the head. I had a nexus for a year or so, its a fine card but its overkill unless you are using a real low end computer and need a card that will take the load off the machine.
