I don't understand.  Could you elaborate?

The XO-1 has hardware-accelerated XVideo, including YUV->RGB and scaling.
 Are you talking about hardware acceleration for the internal stages of
video decoding, a la XvMC?  Tests on a 1.0 GHz C7-M (the processor in
XO-1.5) indicate that software-only rendering should be fast enough to
play DVD-resolution video and audio.
