Support Status: Supported by Myth: Uses IVTV driver

Driver: http://ivtv.sourceforge.net/

Description

The HAUPPAUGE PVR-350 video capture card.

What it Does & Doesn't Do

Does

  • Excellent Standard-Definition NTSC / PAL TV Out from recorded television (MPEG2)
  • Recording direct to MPEG2, just like PVR-250, PVR-150, and PVR-500
  • Built-in RC5 remote control, supported by LIRC.
  • Audio output from MPEG2 recordings
  • Technically X and xv output are working, but they are slow since they operate over the framebuffer.
  • mythdvd works if set up correctly, but takes a lot of CPU

Doesn't

  • Normal X output at decent speed/quality.
  • OpenGL and hardware accelerated output is not supported.
  • High-Definition (HD) output
  • No audio output from anything but MPEG2 - requires pass-through cable to line-in on sound card for other audio output


Well Suited for: a single-card solution for input/ouput of video and audio to a standard television, running only MythTV and recordings

Not Suited for: Mythvideo, mythmusic, mythgame, other output modes, recordings other than MPEG2
