Apple's and oranges.

Micronas is providing a truly global solution that will play across 
ALL platforms using a wide range of video and audio codecs. The ST 
chip is MPEG-2 only and will only play with global DTV broadcasters 
and the current generation of MPEG-2 based cable plants.

The ST chip is designed for cheap DTV receivers. The Micronas chips 
appears to be targeted at STBs and media centers.
