Well, they don't have an mpeg encoder chip, but neither do the old fashioned 
analog TV cards. Of course, supporting that A/V decoder is another matter. 
But so is supporting an onboard mpeg encoder.

They seem to use empia chipsets almost exclusively, the variant without 
onboard MPEG encoder is called the "blackbird" design IIRC.
