claims that your 8800 accelerates VC-1 decode (it has the 2nd-gen VP2 unit), so I'm not sure what might be wrong with your computer.

It looks like this CPU would be able to handle VC1 if the decoders would use more of the available power. At first I thought MPC was only using a single core, but both CPU graphs are showing roughly equal activity.
I'm going to try mildly overclocking this thing later on and see where that gets me.
