MPEG video decoder IC

Any single chip MPEG video solutions that decode the MPEG stream, thus creating video....

Looking for a hardcoded IC, not one of these Cirrus or ESS parts that have uC in them and all sorts of firmware you need to develop for them....

I want to throw the MPEG data at something and have video come out other end, more like the Micronas and ST MP3 decode IC's

Thoughts? Links?

What is "video" output? Data in a frame buffer? NTSC? Analog RGB at VGA syncrates? Uncompressed parallel RGB data for driving a TFT-LCD? What MPEG variant? MPEG-1? MPEG-2? MPEG-4? Do you need to support content scrambling? Do you need to support multiple interleaved program streams? What resolutions do you need to support? Is de-interlacing required?

For any conceivable application that needs MPEG decoding, a microcontroller is also required. So it's practical to integrate it into the one device for consumer parts.

The matrix of the answers to these and other issues makes a "generic" MPEG video IC impractical. There are hardware solutions to accelerate parts of the problem - iDCT, MC, etc, but they're integrated into high-performance video ASICs.
