Idea: MPEG2 software decoded on RPI2

MPEG2 software decoded on RPI2
Seems now that the RPI2 is capable of decoding mpeg2 with the software decoder.

Any thoughts on using the software decoder?

RE: MPEG2 software decoded on RPI2
I'll answer myself:

Deactivating hardware acceleration makes rpi reproduce the dvb output without problem except for the deinterlacing effect.
So maybe it is just a matter of saying to xbmc that mpeg2 is a software codec and "the rest" is a hardware accelerated.

Does anyone know how to do that?

I have no issue software decoding SD content, I had to purchase the mpeg2 license to reliably decode HD content.
