I've been watching this thread as I am interested in building such a
setup also. Can anyone comment on whether the 350 offers any benefit
over the 250? As I understand it, the 350 also includes a hardware
decoder for MPEG-2 playback. Is this any significant advantage? My PVR
will be based on an 1gz AMD Athlon.

support the wide screen HDTV resolutions? Although I've found tuner
cards (no hardware encoder) that support this, I haven't come across any
