SMARTQ7: firmware 5 VS .92 firmware 5.1?

I have firmware 5. It seems to be working well.

I see that there is the Umbutu .92 version 5.1. Any one have info if this is a worthwile update?

I was also looking for the AVI play to support the hardware decoder. Regretfully I have not even tried playing AVI's back in the 5.0 firmware update. I was wondering what people's experiences are.

I really like the utility of the SmartQ7 so far. I would love to be able to do video playback though. And while I have not tried it since reading it would be nice to know it works if someone else has already tried it.

The supplied version of 'mplayer' does support hardware acceleration but only for the following codecs; MPEG-4/H.263/H.264 (up to 30fps@SD and decoding of VC1 video up to 30fps@SD)

I have played video on mine since day one, granted only avi's (divx/xvid) with video @ approx 1000bps and audio @ 96bps but perfectly watchable (not HD quality, but who wants 6GB movie files!).
