What kind of problems are you having getting ivtv to compile? If it's
because you compiled a 2.6 kernel, don't let that discourage you...

more specifically you should look at:
http://67.18.1.101/~ckennedy/ivtv/ which are Chris Kennedy's patches
which include (among other things) support for 2.6 kernels as well as
2.4. I don't have an epia system so I can't comment on the video
quality but if you plan on watching other types of video (besides
mpg2) then I wouldn't recommend the PVR-350. However if this is just
used for watching recorded tv (that you recorded with the capture
card) then by all means get the PVR-350.
