There is hardware assisted decode that makes use of pretty much all the processing power available on a Pi3B or ...

Re: Raspberry Pi TV Hat DVB-T2 Gateway (Tvheadend with FFmpeg and realtime hardware video stream transcoding)

Just wondering what type of trancoding (resolution? codec types?) is this targeted for? Can this transcode HEVC/h265 to h264 in realtime on pi3b+? Or does it trancode mpeg-2 to h264? Can it do mpeg-2 in realtime without paid HW codec?
