What might "packed video" and "planar" formats be?  I did a bit of
google-ing and really didn't find much beyond a pantent which
interestingly was for Intel :)

While I'm exposing myself as an idiot, if I'm interested in displaying
recordings from MythTV on an HDTV (preferably through DVI, HDMI or
Component if available), am I interested in textured video or video
overlay?  The only discussion I could quickly find on that was from
Keith a while back that seems probably above my level of current
(Which also seems to suggest the 965 doesn't have an overlay, which
leads me to wonder if th G35 does...)

Thanks for all the responses to my relatively stupid question(s).
