So what's the status on nVidia hardware support for X264/H264 decoding?

    Hi everyone,

    I've just gotten a new monitor and a bunch of cool footage to play on it (Hooray for HD!), but my CPU is bitching and stuttering every time I fire up a 1080p clip...

    Wasn't there supposed to be built-in hardware support for X264/H264 in the 7-series? How do I get it to actually do what it's supposed to be doing? (CPU usage pegs at 100% on one core, so I'm just going to assume that the GPU isn't doing jack)...

    Any ideas?

    Running a 7800GTX with ~150 forceware (not exactly sure any more, which one)...

    Thanks in advance...
