Recently I found interestihng article about using of hardware h264 encoding/decoding support of raspberrry Pi.
Is it possible to use that hardware for for transcode and live stream e.g. 1080i to 720p HD channel in Tvheadend?
Or maybe add such support in feature?
I think that feature will be not too bad.

Unfortunately not at this time, though interestingly one of our regulars in the IRC channel (dickon) has written a transcoder (omxtx I think) for the pi.
Maybe one day, but the whole transcoding stuff needs significant work and the guy that wrote it originally has been too busy to do any work of late.

Thanks,Adam, but maybe use raspberry as usb-dongle for regular Tvheadend PC for that ?
