Status of iDCT in i810 for G965 & X3000

As I understand, the i810 driver allows XvMC to use motion 
compensation. Intel says the X3000 video chip on G965 also 
does iDCT and de-interlacing in hardware. ( Sadly, it does 
not support H.264).

Does the i810 driver support iDCT on the G965? In process? 
Planned? Not a chance?

I'm trying to decide between G965 and nvidia ( which does 
support iDCT) for a box that plays OTA 1080i HDTV. I'd much 
prefer to use OSS, but...
