I was never able to get decent divx playback on the PVR-350 tv-out
nomatter how much horsepower was available.
Havent tried it with the latest ivtv and X driver so it might be
possible at the moment but I doubt it. DVD might be better since you can
use the mpeg2 decoder for that but I don't use it because i like AC3
audio playing back DVD's.
