Which was cut out of the quote in my reply.
Going full circle, once again (short version):
OP (rwinburne), "I have a KT266 board. Will it work with a PVR-x50?"
Reply 1 (David), "Don't use Via. It's not worth the trouble."
Reply 2 (Peter), "I use Via and it works great on my KM400, so any
fairly new mobo should work."
Reply 3 (me), "KM-400 is new, KT266 is not and KT-266 is explicitly
listed as not working."
Reply 4 (Peter), "I guess this [Peter's advice] was bad advice."
Reply 5 (
), see above
