There are no cards that "decode" DVB-T. All DVB-T cards do is pass the MPEG data onto the PC for decoding.

The HD2600 probably does H.264 acceleration but ardware acceleration has never worked properly with ATI cards & Vista. There have been a few people say they have got it working but most peole have had issues.
