    Yes, the S3 can play back Mpeg 4 video (and will accept Mpeg 4 video transferred to it through the network), it just can't tune to a channel that is encoded that way (or something like that).

    Not really strange.. The hardware decoder chips can play MPEG2 & MPEG 4, but the tuner decoding hardware doesn't know what to do with MPEG 4.. at least that's my reasonable guess.
