I have one, it works fine - when re-outputted to TV the difference is nearly
unnoticeable at 352x240 and 99% perfect at 480x480.
But I have problems with the remote, the delay lirc can take between key presses
is just too long, it's annoying. I'll try recreating the config file again,
maybe it'll turn out ok then.

The 8738 works great for me, you should be comfortable, it's been supported
for quite a long time (over a year, the driver was already very good when I got
my card), the driver is very stable for me.
