Well, I guess they must. But what is the expected life of one? Longer than a regular computer? For example, if you bought a Revo, do you think it would be unable to play television at some point because the technology passed it?

H.264 is more complex and difficult to decode than MPEG2. My old PC could do MPEG2 easily but struggles with H.264. My digital camera takes 12MP pictures. Now they are slower to render at screen or thumbnail resolutions.
