My understanding of the PVR-350 is that it only works in very limited
scenarios (that is, displaying standard definition digital TV). If you
want to do anything else (e.g. MythVideo, high-def, etc) then it's not
going to work.
Looking at the XvMC page on the wiki
(http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/XvMC) seems to indicate that you
should be able to get away with your CPU and a card capable of XvMC.
