Stupid question.. how do I turn on hardware acceleration for Sage mpeg2 decoder?

This is the first time I've tried using the built-in Sage decoder. The CPU utilization is too much for my PC to handle (shows >50% with hyperthreading on). Video is really choppy. When I use Nvidia or WinDVD (Hauppauge's OEM free mpeg2 decoder), the CPU utilization is 13% on HDTV material.

IIRC, the Sage decoder doesn't do hardware acceleration. That is the point of spending the $ on something like Nvidia.

The SageTV decoder does support hardware deinterlacing through VMR9; but not hardware MPEG2 decode acceleration.

So, if I'm using hardware accelleration with Intervideo + Overlay rendering, would that mean I'm using my Nvidia 6600GT's "pure video" deinterlacing?

Maybe, but you're definitely missing the film detection/bad edit correction.
