But you can't display the captions on the output from the MPEG-2 decoder
in the PVR-350. It outputs them in the NTSC signal for the TV to decode.
Captions work for you because you're using a real video card--the
FX5200. The point of the post was that the PVR-350's decoder is really
not worth the money (and--IMHO--more importantly, not worth supporting).
